The NHRC is pleased to unveil the compromis for the prestigious Sir Dawda Kairaba Jawara International Human Rights Moot Court Competition, 2022. The SDK Moot is a flagship program of the NHRC that targets undergraduate law students to argue human rights issues before a regional human rights court using African human rights mechanisms and norms. This year, 12 African Universities are expected to compete in the preliminary rounds of the Moot and 8 are expected to come to the Gambia for the quarter, semifinal and final rounds. The competition is scheduled to take place from the 5-10 December 2022. This year's case follows the story of the Republic of Kunta Kinteh, a small country in West Africa that is faced with critical questions of accountability for atrocity crimes, right to remedy and reparations. transitional justice, right to life etc. While the Republic of Kunta Kinteh has made modest efforts towards justice, many of the victims of the human rights violations are not pleased with the slow steps the government of Kunta Kinteh has taken towards bringing her former President and his accomplices to justice and have instructed an NGO to file a case on their behalf before the African Court on Human and Peoplesâ€™ Rights.
