Trial Watch

Trial Watch is a unique database, centralizing over 1,400 cases related to international crimes.

Hermann Goering, Augusto Pinochet, Hissène Habré, Slobodan Milosevic, Laurent Gbagbo… These trials, which have marked the history of the twentieth century, are often long and complex. Trial Watch aims at making international justice accessible to all, by delivering for each case a summary of the context, the facts and the proceedings.

Accessible both in French and English, this database entails both closed and ongoing cases, be there before national or international jurisdiction.

Trial Watch has received hundreds of thousands of visits since its creation. It has become a tool of reference for numerous journalists, students, legal practitioners, NGOs and members of the general public willing to learn more about international justice.

Created by TRIAL International in 2004, Trial Watch is run by a large team of volunteers in charge of writing and translating the profiles.
