Sidore Lecture: Alynna Lyon

March 28 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

Building Global Justice in the Face of Mass Atrocities, Crimes Against Humanity, and Genocide.  

The global community has been shocked by recent accusations of mass atrocities, crimes against humanity, and genocide in places like Ukraine, China, and Myanmar.  Considering these developments, the discussion will trace the development of international responses and tools to address these crimes at the global level. The presentation includes coverage of the 1948 Genocide Convention, ad hoc tribunals, the International Criminal Court as well as increasing norms concerning global justice.  Specific focus will be given to the implications for global justice in response to allegations against Russia in Ukraine.
