The Rule of Law Symposium’s overarching theme continues to be 'Law not war' in celebration of the life of the IBA Rule of Law Lifetime Achievement award winner 2022 Benjamin Ferencz. The Symposium will consider 'Accountability and Justice'; 'Does the rule of law apply to sanctions', and 'Assessing the impact of the judicial appointments process in undermining the rule of law'.
Please join this fascinating discussion and hear from leading global specialists in the rule of law including Dr. Anton Korynevych, Ambassador-at-large in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine; Baroness Helena Kennedy (Director of the IBA Human Rights Institute); Dr Willy Mutunga (immediate past Chief Justice of Kenya); and Lord Neuberger (former President of the Supreme Court of England).
