Syria is witnessing one of the bloodiest civil wars. The Center for Justice and Accountability (CJA) found evidence that Marie Colvin, war correspondent for London's Sunday Times, was killed by Syrian military and intelligence forces. In July, CJA brought suit against the Syrian government for her murder.

Join us for a discussion on holding governments accountable for human rights abuses. Panelists are Dixon Osburn, CJA's Executive Director; Scott Gilmore, CJA's lead staff attorney on the Marie Colvin case; and Professor Beth Van Schaack, Leah Kaplan Visiting Professor in Human Rights at Stanford Law School and Visiting Scholar at the Center for International Security & Cooperation.
