Description

For 17 years, lawyer Reed Brody has been the strategist behind the victims’ campaign to bring to justice the former dictator of Chad, Hissène Habré, recently sentenced by a court in Senegal to life imprisonment for crimes against humanity. Brody also worked on the cases of Augusto Pinochet of Chile and Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier of Haiti. He is author of four Human Rights Watch reports on the U.S. treatment of prisoners in the “war on terror” and the book “Faut-il Juger George Bush?” He has taught courses on accountability for international crimes at Columbia Law School and the American University Washington College of Law.
