Abstract

In his talk, Dr. Zawati discussed how the current impunity for perpetrators of gender-based crimes in Libya is compounded by a lack of stable democratic institutions and lack of security. He also spoke to the urgent need for reform of Libya’s justice sys-tem. He suggested that implementing a hybrid system coordinating international and domestic justice actors could advance restorative justice by strengthening the rule of law and legal accountability. I spoke with Dr. Zawati to discuss the challenges of pursuing accountability for sexual violence in international and domestic criminal law.
