On February 11, 2011, students of the International Women’s Human Rights (IWHR) Clinic at the City University of New York School of Law attended a round-table discussion at Fordham University School of Law hosted by the Fordham Disaster Relief Network (DRN). The round-table discussion sought to bring together student-activists in the New York area who work on post-earthquake human rights issues in Haiti. IWHR students shared their experiences of conducting a fact-finding mission on sexual violence occurring in the internally displaced persons camps in Port-au-Prince. They discussed obstacles and successes related to the fact-finding mission and the subsequent litigation in the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.
