New Challenges to Justice: Genocide in the 21st Century
After decades of progress towards a robust legal regime to prevent and punish genocide, to provide redress for its consequences, the first two decades of the 21st century have seen a resurgence in the commission of genocides around the world, numerous setbacks in international prosecutions, and the failure of efforts to replicate the success of the Holocaust restitution settlements for other survivor and victim groups. This conference, bringing together lawyers, academics, historians, and activists, asks where we go from here. How can lawyers and activists respond to these challenges, and what role can we play going forward? Please join us in exploring current genocides occurring around the world today, legal challenges to post-conflict justice, and effective advocacy in a changing world.
