U.S. Military Commission Observation Project

The Pentagon’s Guantanamo Bay Convening Authority granted “NGO Observer Status” to the IU McKinney Program in International Human Rights Law (PIHRL).

The PIHRL established the “Military Commission Observation Project” (“MCOP”) which will implement PIHRL responsibilities as a selected NGO Observer.

MCOP representatives may travel to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to attend, observe, analyze, critique, and publish materials on the hearings. Travel may also be to the Ft. Meade, Maryland military base where the same Guantanamo Bay hearings may be viewed via secure video-link.
