Speaker information

Dr Ayça Çubukçu, Assistant Professor in Human Rights, LSE

Part of the Citizenship, Social Imagination and Collective Action seminar series. The series is hosted by the Social Theory Research Group within the Department of Social Science at UCL.

The global anti-war movement against the invasion and occupation of Iraq crystalized on February 15, 2003, when millions of people simultaneously demonstrated in six hundred cities around the world. The World Tribunal on Iraq (WTI) emerged from this global anti-war movement “to tell and disseminate the truth about the Iraq war.” Between 2003 and 2005, in the absence of official institutions of justice willing or able to perform the task, the WTI established a globally networked platform where the reasons and consequences of the war could be investigated, where those responsible for the destruction of Iraq could be publicly judged and established. Based on two years of fieldwork with WTI activists in New York and Istanbul, this talk will rethink the transnational praxis of the World Tribunal on Iraq.
