“One of the four focus areas of the IHRC is refugee rights. Another is accountability for atrocity situations. Our clinic is always adjusting and acting upon what is most urgent, taking into consideration the most pressing human rights concerns of the day. Combining these two focus areas with what’s happening in Ukraine, it made sense to help this young family while another clinic team was simultaneously in The Hague at the International Criminal Court, with Professor Garry calling for accountability for the perpetration of atrocities that caused this family to flee.”
