Regional and Grassroots Justice in Africa: Hissène Habré and Beyond

The Trial of Hissène Habré

It is an uphill struggle to bring African leaders to justice. Many escape the continent, others stay put, others rob the national treasury, others put pressure on the media to keep silent. What happened in Chad is special. The former dictator Hissène Habré was brought to court for his years in absolute power. The journalist Celeste Hicks followed the trial and wrote a book about it, titled The Trial of Hissène Habré (2018). Next month the book will be launched, not in Chad, but in London (United Kingdom). In this article you will find more information on the venue and other valuable information.
