Hello everybody, happy Sunday!

I didn’t quite finish this post for the weekend, but then I  wanted to post it, because the articles I collected throughout the week are exceptionally good! I hope you’ll enjoy them too…

Cautionary tales for the Mueller Probe from the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia 

That’s an unlikely comparison, I mean it would have never occurred to me to think about these two cases in parallel, but if you consider the reasoning, it makes a lot of sense.

Here’s Why the Security Council Should Not Refer Burmese Authorities to the International Criminal Court 

So, we know these thing are happening, we know something needs to be done, then why does it take forever to actually stop the inhumanity that’s been going on in Myanmar?

Europe is a thought that needs to become a feeling

This is an op-ed piece that was published in Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung by Bono before the opening of the European leg of U2′s Experience + Innocence Tour in Berlin this week. It is about the importance of the EU and European values, that as an internationalist, I can fully support. What I found quite fascinating though, was that not everyone agreed with Bono even from the band’s own crowd. Many fans weren’t appreciative of bringing politics into the concerts, even though that’s something U2 always does (and they are not the only ones) and quite frankly, I think that’s part of what makes U2 what they are. Personally, I think the world needs more Bonos.❤

And speaking of great humanitarians, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein stepped down this week as UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. This is his farewell piece in this capacity from The Economist. Do read it, it’s important.
