NGO Observers at Camp Justice, Guantanamo Bay (2014

Welcome to the Military Commission Observation Project (“MCOP”).

The Pentagon granted “NGO Observer Status” to Indiana University McKinney School of Law‘s Program in International Human Rights Law (PIHRL). The PIHRL then established the MCOP to implement NGO Observer responsibilities. MCOP representatives are traveling to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and Ft. Meade, Maryland military base (where the Guantanamo Bay hearings are viewavle via secure video-link) to attend, observe, analyze, critique, and publish materials on the hearings. See our Our “About” page for more information about us.
