Online Discussion: International Justice - Fighting Impunity in Syria

Registration link:

Even if the war in Syria is no longer quite as much in the spotlight - at least in the media - the topic and the way it is dealt with remain all the more important.In addition to the current developments in the country, the question of coming to terms with and prosecuting war crimes and crimes against humanity is urgent and of great relevance for the coming years.We would like to discuss the current humanitarian and international law situation and possible options, such as an international war crimes tribunal, also with a view to the criminal court trial in Koblenz (Germany). To this end, we would like to discuss the opportunities, factual hurdles and necessities for such international criminal proceedings.

At the same time, however, the question should also be raised as to what scope for action is currently still available to the European Union and other actors, or what reality actually needs to be faced.We would like to discuss this with
-Anwar Al-Bunni (Syrian Center for Legal Studies and Researches) and
-Bente Scheller (Heinrich Böll Foundation)
to get into conversation and discuss with you.

The discussion will be held in English.
