The Tunisian Association of Women Judges Conducted Training for Judges on International Humanitarian Law and International Human Rights Law

Tunisia | Our member association, the Tunisian Association of Women Judges (TAWJ) conducted a training for 40 women judges on international humanitarian law and international human rights law on January 26 and 27. This training is the beginning of a program on the obstacles that judges encounter in the application of international law.

The workshop was titled: “Training workshop on international humanitarian law and international human rights law, the role of national and international jurisdictions in the prosecution of serious crimes.” The goal was for it to make judges aware of the importance of their role in the fight against impunity and the pursuit of human rights violators, as well as strengthen the capacity of judges in the field of human rights.

This activity is part of a new partnership between the TAWJ and the Arab Center for International Law (ACIL) for the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Geneva Conventions of 1949.

Among the participants were judges from all regions of the country and one Yemeni judge.
