Launch of the Nuremberg Academy Lectures – Philippe Sands
It is with great pleasure that the International Nuremberg Principles Academy announces the launch of its Nuremberg Academy Lectures. We are particularly honoured that Professor Philippe Sands, British-French human rights lawyer, Professor of Law at University College London and author of seventeen books on international law, will deliver the inaugural lecture on 24 November 2020. His book East West Street: On the Origins of Genocide and Crimes against Humanity has been widely acclaimed and has been awarded numerous prizes. He has appeared before many international courts, including, inter alia, the European Court of Justice, the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court and the Special Court for Sierra Leone.
In his lecture ‘International Justice and Personal Stories: From East West Street to The Ratline, and Beyond’, Professor Sands will discuss the origins of international criminal law in light of the 75th anniversary of the opening of the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg and address contemporary developments of international criminal law. The lecture will be followed by a discussion moderated by Dr. Viviane Dittrich, Deputy Director of the Nuremberg Academy.
The event will take place on 24 November 2020 (7 p.m. CET). The platform used will be Zoom webinar. Prior registration via the Nuremberg Academy website is required.
