Invitación Ginebra

The International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute invites you to:

Venezuela, Syria and Zimbabwe:

A discussion on the independence of judiciary and the rule of law

Friday 7 October, 1200 - 1400

Room XXII, Palais des Nations, 1211 Geneva 10, Switzerland

Lunch provided

In 2011 the International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute (IBAHRI) undertook fact-finding missions to Venezuela, Syria and Zimbabwe. The IBAHRI found significant cause for concern over the extent of political interference in the judiciary, the rule of law and the ability for human rights lawyers to practice freely. High level panelists will discuss these common issues in the three vastly different contexts of Venezuela, Syria and Zimbabwe, all being reviewed at the Twelfth Session of the Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review (3-14 October 2011).


Dr Phillip Tahmindjis, IBAHRI Co-Director


Sternford Moyo, Zimbabwe. Former President of the Law Society of Zimbabwe; IBAHRI Co-Chair

Rafael Chavero, Venezuela. Professor of Administrative and Constitutional Law, Universidad Central De Venezuela

Haitham Al Maleh, Syria.Lawyer and human rights activist.
