    This program focuses on the atrocities committed in the Ukraine conflict and the responses thereto. We will explore the activities of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and other justice mechanisms, including national systems, and discuss the steps needed to investigate and prosecute atrocity crimes and the political and diplomatic challenges to those prosecutions. The panel will also take up the reluctance of the U.S. to recognize the legitimacy of the ICC and the implications of that hesitancy for the legal academy and the Court. Finally, the panel will ask whether and how prosecuting atrocity crimes can make a difference.

    Business meeting at program conclusion.
