Seeking Justice in Chad Jacqueline Moudeina

2009 Oslo Freedom Forum
May 20, 2009

Chadian lawyer Jacqueline Moudeina tells the story of her campaign for women's and children's rights in her country, and how her struggle against successive regimes led to a vicious attack on her life that required more than a year of recovery time. Moudeina argues that the biggest problem in Chad is a culture of impunity, a culture that is “installed and maintained” by the government. The only way to overcome such a culture, she explains, is through perseverance and international cooperation.
