Invitation to Nobel Peace Prize ceremony a moment of sheer joy for Human Rights Center’s Seelinger

Kim Thuy Seelinger mentioned in the Berkeley News, December 7, 2018

Tuesday will see Seelinger take part in a pair of panels with the United Nations Special Representative on Sexual Violence in Armed Conflict, Pramila Patten, to talk about progress made (and not made) toward accountability for these crimes.

And she is looking forward in particular to Wednesday, when she will attend the opening of this year’s Nobel Peace Center exhibition, “The Body as a Battlefield.” Seelinger helped the curators develop it, drawing from her Berkeley students’ research on historical examples of conflict-related sexual violence and attempts to prosecute it.
