The Legacy of the Nuremberg Principles: Holding Syrias Assad and Other Human Rights Criminals Accountable
The Nuremberg principles established that some crimes are so egregious that they represent offense against all humankind.
Today, Syria is witnessing one of the bloodiest civil wars in the world.  We have seen the images of the boy from Aleppo, and the child washed up on the shores of Greece.  Among the many victims was Marie Colvin, a renowned war correspondent for Londons Sunday Times, who traveled secretly into the besieged city of Homs to cover the suffering of Syrian civilians. After a three-year, globetrotting investigation, the Center for Justice and Accountability (CJA) unearthed evidence that Marie was deliberately assassinated by Syrian military and intelligence forces. In July 2016, CJA and co-counsel Shearman & Sterling LLP brought suit against the government of Syria for the murder of Marie Colvin. CJAs lawsuit is the first case seeking to hold the Assad regime responsible for war crimes.
Join us for a panel discussion about holding governments accountable for human rights abuses and using the law as a civilizing factor against instability. Panelists include: Dixon Osburn, CJAs Executive Director; Scott Gilmore, CJAs lead staff attorney on the Marie Colvin case; and Professor Beth Van Schaack, Leah Kaplan Visiting Professor in Human Rights at the Law School and Visiting Scholar at the Center for International Security & Cooperation at Stanford University
