As the attack on Ukraine by Russia continues, apparent war crimes have come to light, including the rape and execution of civilians, deliberate attacks on civilian objects such as hospitals, buildings, and schools, the pillage of captured towns, and the forced deportation of thousands of Ukrainians to Russia.

Anthony Dworkin – Senior Policy Fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations, and Co-Editor of Crimes of War 2.0: What the Public Should Know – will discuss how the global community can investigate and document possible war crimes and hold alleged perpetrators accountable in a real-life application of international humanitarian law.

Lecture Chair: Ruti G. Teitel, Ernst C. Stiefel Professor of Comparative Law, Co-Director, Center for International Law, and Director, Institute for Global Law, Justice, and Policy, New York Law School; author, Humanity’s Law (Oxford University Press, 2011).
