Join the International Human Rights Clinic, the International Law Society, the International and Comparative Law Program, and the American Society of International Law for a panel discussion of the Clinic’s new report, Comparative Law Study and Analysis of National Legislation Relating to Crimes Against Humanity and Extraterritorial Jurisdiction, and a discussion of steps that might be taken nationally and internationally to develop the law on such crimes.
The report will be presented by its co-authors, Professor Arturo Carrillo, and former clinic staff attorney, Annalise Nelson.
Commentators on the report will include GW Law Professors Sean Murphy and Mike Matheson, discussing related topics such as the International Law Commission’s on-going work around an international CAH convention, and a perspective on the challenges to codifying crimes against humanity in the United States.
Associate Dean for International and Comparative Legal Studies Susan L. Karamanian will moderate this event.
The event will be followed by a reception in the Kelly Lounge.
