The International Law Commission is currently drafting provisions of what could become a Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Crimes against Humanity.
What are the key elements to be covered by such a treaty? Is it needed? What could such a convention bring to the fight against impunity? How would it relate to the Rome Statute? What are the prospects of success?
To explore these issues, please join us with our guest speaker Professor Sean D. Murphy of George Washington University and Member of the United Nations International Law Commission where he serves as Special Rapporteur on the topic of ‘Crimes against Humanity’
