Achieving Accountability for War Crimes in Syria
Tuesday, June 13, 2017 | 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

There is no fee for this event, please sign in to register.

Description:
In the spring of 2011, thousands of Syrians rose up to protest the dictatorship of President Bashar al-Assad. In response, the Assad regime launched a brutal crackdown thus igniting an unprecedented six-year civil war and one of the worst humanitarian crises in the modern age, with no end in sight. As evidence of war crimes and mass atrocities perpetrated by the Assad regime mounts, rallying cries for justice grow. This panel will examine current ongoing efforts to hold the Assad regime accountable, and discuss prospects of future accountability and redress for victims to the conflict. The event is co-sponsored by the Vance Center for International Justice, the Center for Justice and Accountability, and the American Society of International Law’s Transitional Justice Interest Group.
