May 16 @ 09:30-16:00

The Nuremberg Academy is organizing the international conference on “Prohibition, Prosecution, and Prevention of Enforced Disappearances” in cooperation with the Centre for Human Rights Erlangen-Nürnberg (CHREN) of Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg at Courtroom 600 in the Palace of Justice in Nuremberg, Germany, on 15 and 16 May 2020.

The conference will reflect on the importance of sanctioning and criminalizing enforced disappearances, by analyzing the concept of enforced disappearance as a human rights violation and as a crime. In light of the upcoming tenth anniversary of the entry into force of the Enforced Disappearances Convention, the conference will provide a forum for leading international experts and practitioners to critically discuss what lessons can be learned from the origins, evolution, and practical experience of the concept of enforced disappearances for the advancement of the fields of human rights law and international criminal law.

Prof. Olivier de Frouville from Université Panthéon-Assas (Paris II) and member of the United Nations Committee on Enforced Disappearances will deliver the keynote address.
