Justice For All: Exploring Impunity in the Middle East and North Africa
About This Event
What can a framework of impunity vs. accountability tell us about the multidimensional challenges facing the Middle East and North Africa? What are the striking similarities and pitfalls in how governments handle issues like human rights, economic exploitation and environmental degradation? And how can we build systems and cultures of accountability? Join Nada Al-Nashif, Mark Malloch-Brown, Suzanne Maloney, Ghassan Salamé, and Katharine Starr as they use the Atlas of Impunity as a lens to discuss the rule of law and accountability in the Middle East and North Africa.
The Chicago Council and the Eurasia Group recently launched the world’s first Atlas of Impunity report, a comprehensive index scoring 197 countries and territories on their abuse of power across five key societal dimensions.
This discussion is part of a four-part series of regional discussions in partnership with the Kofi Annan Foundation, an independent non-profit which works to create a fairer and more peaceful world.
