The New York City Bars Committee on African Affairs

and the Leitner Center for International Law and Justice
cordially invite you to a presentation by


Counsel and Spokesperson for Human Rights Watch, who specializes in pursuing
abusive leaders for atrocities and human rights violations.

Monday, April 11, 2016 at 6:30 p.m.

Fordham Law School, Classroom 3-02
140 West 62nd St., New York, NY (between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues)
Dubbed the "Dictator Hunter" in one of the four documentaries about him, Reed has worked
since 1999 as counsel for the victims in the case of the exiled former dictator of
Chad, Hissne Habr, who was finally tried in Senegal after a 25-year campaign to bring
him to justice. The historic trial is the first time a deposed ruler has been tried by a court
of a country other than his own for human rights violations. It also marks the first time that
a trial in Africa has relied on the international law principle of universal jurisdiction which
allows a court to hear a case concerning serious crimes committed by foreign actors
against foreign victims.
Reed has also worked with the victims of Augusto Pinochet and Jean-Claude Baby Doc
Duvalier. He is the author of four Human Rights Watch reports on U.S. treatment of
prisoners in the war on terror.
The presentation is free and open to the public.
