MAIS would like to extend a warm welcome to Human Rights Watch consultant Professor Olivier Bercault. HRW recently published his book “La Plaine Des Morts” (The Plain of the Dead), a study indicating Habré’s personal implication in the massive human rights violations in Chad during his rule. Professor Bercault also served as deputy-head of the Human Rights Office of the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) where he directed the reporting effort of the UN regarding abuses committed in this country. Welcome to MAIS, Professor Bercault!
