Under the leadership of women Nobel Peace Prize Laureates and their partner organization, the Women's League of Burma, the Nobel Women's Initiative is planning an International Tribunal on Crimes Against Women in Burma. The Tribunal is a women-directed and women-centered justice and advocacy initiative. Judges will hear testimony from several women of Burma who will share their personal stories of surviving human rights violations and crimes under military rule in Burma.
Their voices, and the findings and recommendations of the judges, will be directed to the Burmese regime and the international community. The Tribunal will provide a powerful spotlight on the oppression of women of Burma in order to support the development of a just and peaceful Burma.
