WCC 3007

Join Matt Wells, JD ’09, Director of Amnesty International’s Crisis Response Programme, to explore the role of supply chains and arms exports, including US-made weapons, in human rights and international humanitarian law violations around the world. Matt has worked on a range of conflicts, including in Côte d’Ivoire, Israel/Gaza, Myanmar, Nigeria, South Sudan, Sudan, and Ukraine. He will discuss how Amnesty has used rigorous field research, open source investigation, and international law analysis to document the use of specific weapons, including US-made weapons, in likely war crimes and to demand accountability. He will also address how Amnesty grapples with strategic questions about framing their work in polarized and politicized contexts.
