Clinic Launches "Crimes Against Humanity" Report

In October, 2013, GW Law's International Human Rights Clinic helped launch the report, Comparative Law Study and Analysis of National Legislation Relating to Crimes Against Humanity and Extraterritorial Jurisdiction. The report, written by the director of the International Human Rights Clinic, Professor Arturo Carrillo, and former clinic staff attorney Annalise Nelson, concludes that crimes against humanity are inadequately prevented by domestic legislation worldwide.

Professor Carrillo and Ms. Nelson presented their findings at a panel discussion hosted by the clinic in partnership with the International Law Society, the International and Comparative Law Program, and the American Society of International Law. At the event, which was moderated by Associate Dean Susan Karamanian, GW Law Professors Sean D. Murphy and Michael J. Matheson also commented on the report and discussed related topics, such as the International Law Commission's ongoing work on an international crimes against humanity convention.
