About the Event

Aggression in Ukraine: International Law and Accountability

Given the tragic outbreak of war in Ukraine and Russia's flagrant violation of the UN Charter and ongoing commission of crimes, this panel will explore justice possibilities both at the level of state accountability as well as individual criminal responsibility. The panel will discuss the role that the International Criminal Court can play, as well as other possibilities for accountability. Discussion will include consideration of crimes under the International Criminal Court's Rome Statute, the crime of aggression, cyberattacks as encompassed within the International Criminal Court's crimes, the regulation of cyber-attacks, and the potential role of the International Court of Justice.

Keynote: Ambassador Christian Wenaweser, Permanent Representative of Liechtenstein to the United Nations

Moderator: Jennifer Trahan, Clinical Professor, NYU Center for Global Affairs; Convenor, Global Institute for the Prevention of Aggression; Co-Chair, ICC Committee of the American Branch of the International Law Association
