It has been a busy few weeks for C&C member Dr Kate Cronin-Furman, Lecturer in human rights at the Department of Political Science at University College London (UCL).
On 23 April 2019, Kate wrote “What happened in Sri Lanka? Here’s what you need to know” in the Washington Post. In it, she presents important context to the recent Easter Sunday attacks, analyses the Sri Lankan government’s response to the attacks and describes how the attacks might affect the upcoming presidential elections.
On 6 June, Kate was also quoted in the Daily Beast article “Remember The Darfur Genocide? With Saudi Help, One of the Killer Commanders There Is Taking Over Sudan”, which investigates the role of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the ongoing crisis in Sudan.
Looking ahead, on 17 June Kate will be part of an expert panel to discuss ‘The Prosecutors', a feature length documentary that tells the story of three dedicated lawyers who fight to ensure that rape in war is not met with impunity. The panel, which also includes Director and Producer Leslie Thomas and PhD student Vindhya Buthpitiya, will discuss depictions of human rights victims in film and photography.
