This chapter presents a lecture that highlights the increasing convergence between international human rights and international humanitarian law, and shows how international human rights are now being enforced in international criminal tribunals. It is particularly suitable that this lecture is being delivered in Warsaw, because Poland suffered more than anoy other country from the atrocities of foreign occupation during World War II. By criminalizing violations of the provisions of common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions as well as crimes against humanity, both with content identical to human rights norms, the Tribunals have enhanced the bite of human rights law.

Keywords:   international human rights, international humanitarian law, international criminal tribunals, Warsaw, human rights violations, Geneva Conventions
