June 3, 2015

INTERESTS OF AMICI CURIAE
Prospective amici curiae are legal scholars and practitioners of human rights law and international law in Europe. Together, amici have substantial experience researching, publishing and litigating on the approach of European courts to international organization immunity. In particular, amici possess expertise in how courts confronted with international organization immunity in jurisdictions outside the United States have applied such immunity in a manner that comports with international law and respects individuals’ human right to access effective remedies. Amici have a strong interest in ensuring that immunity is not interpreted in a way that violates this right. They submit their brief in support of Plaintiffs-Appellants’ position that immunity should not be accorded in this case, where doing so would deny Plaintiffs-Appellants’ access to any means to obtain redress for the harms they have suffered.
