Informing the public
Trial Watch is an online database which offers the public easy access to numerous procedures concerning international crimes before national or international tribunals. It includes more than 650 profiles, each one of them containing a brief explanation of the facts, a summary of the legal procedure, as well as useful links to the documents, thus allowing everyone to further explore the files they wish to by accessing: decisions, reports of NGOs, bibliographies, and press articles. Visitors can “subscribe” to profiles representing a current procedure to be updated of any developments in the selected case.
Nearly 1,000 copies of the TRIAL Journal, which is trilingual, are published three times a year.
International Justice Map
The International Justice Map is a monthly snapshot of the latest developments in the field of international criminal law at national and international tribunals, legislation, truth commissions and UN activities. It is sent to nearly 1,000 people.
TRIAL operates a daily summary of news of international criminal law and the fight against impunity in the world. This summary is updated daily on the TRIAL website and sent to over 1,500 subscribers once a week.
The association organises many public conferences and panel discussions with a limited number of spaces available, which involve meeting a person working on a topic relevant to TRIAL, as well as screening of films covering topics related to international justice.
TRIAL organizes regular activities during special days such as the International Justice Day on 17 July (when the Rome Treaty of the ICC was adopted) or the International Day of the Missing on 30 August.
TRIAL has drafted a practical manual which explains how authors of international crimes can be prosecuted in Switzerland.
