Conference commemorating the 80th anniversary of the United Nations War Crimes Commission.
20 October 2023 marks the 80th anniversary of the establishment of the United Nations War Crimes Commission, which was the first international organisation created by the Allied governments to collect and assess evidence of crimes committed during the Second World War, to advise on legal matters related to the prosecution of war criminals and to coordinate the investigative work of the Allied countries.
This conference will not only remind the historical role and scope of works of the UNWCC, but also indicate relevance of its discussion in the context of contemporary efforts to provide accountability for international crimes, including crimes in Ukraine. Among conference speakers are distinguished experts in diplomacy and international criminal law, including practitioners (international judges and prosecutors), and representatives of academia.
The event will take place on 18 October 2023 at 15:00 – 20:00.
