IBA Showcase: atrocity prevention – from Rwanda to Ukraine, why international law still matters
Wednesday 2 November (0930 - 1230)
This IBA Showcase will focus on the timely and important issue of atrocity prevention and ensuring that those who commit atrocity crimes are brought to justice. The panel discussion will consider issues such as justice through the ICC, universal jurisdiction, the UN Security Council, the Responsibility to Protect principle, and other accountability mechanisms.
The session will also focus on relevant country case studies, including the current war in Ukraine, and attendees will have an opportunity to review, comment, and debate ways of highlighting atrocity crimes to the general public.
