‘Do War Crime Trials do more Harm than Good?’

3rd May 2007

Intuitively all defenders of human rights are in favour of war crime trials. But can the idea of an international code of criminal law survive the realpolitik of states trading insults over who has been most complicit? Will war crime trials become as familiar as ordinary criminal trials are today, or is it merely a passing liberal fad?

This event is in honour of the Centre's MSc Human Rights Alumni.

This event free to attend and will be followed by an invitation-only dinner for our Alumni.
