Today, the Peace Palace in The Hague is host to TEDxHagueAcademy, a TEDx event with a focus on peace, justice and human rights. Nine excellent speakers will talk about subjects ranging from the Sharia to the international role of China. Our cartoonists have been asked to visualize the subjects: the result will be shown in between the different sessions.
Summer vacation has come to an end (at least in our part of the world), and we're kicking off September with a new cartoon project. The project is a cooperation with Radio Netherlands Worldwide, a partner in various past projects. RNW is setting up a new website with a focus on the International Criminal Court, and the trials of Ruto, Sang and Kenyatta in particular. Ruto, Sang and Kenyatta are three Kenyans who stand accused of crimes against humanity, for their role in the post-election violence in 2007-08. Their trials will commence September 10; for backgound information, we recommend you visit www.icckenya.org.
The website will be an discussion platform, open to different views on these trials. Our cartoonists will visualize different perspectives, and fuel the discussion with their cartoons. Take a look at the cartoons that have come in already in our project newsroom.
