About the Dialogs
The 5th Annual International Humanitarian Law Dialogs will be held at Chautauqua Institution on August 28-30, 2011. The symposium, featuring the former Chief Prosecutors of U.N. International Tribunals and global legal scholars, will focus on the theme, Widespread and Systematic--Crimes Against Humanity in the Shadow of Modern International Criminal Law.
The dialogs are hosted by the Robert H. Jackson Center, which is dedicated to the life, words, work and legacy of Robert H. Jackson, the architect of the international trial process and then the chief prosecutor of the surviving Nazi leaders at Nuremberg, Germany. The dialogs are a gathering of academics, human rights activists, and those involved in both previous and ongoing international tribunals and trials at the International Criminal Court. At the first dialogs, in August 29, 2007, everyone in attendance signed the Chautauqua Declaration calling on all nations to pursue justice as a matter of law. Learn more about the International Humanitarian Law Dialogs and the Robert H. Jackson Center.
The screening of "The Response" is scheduled for August 28, 2011. More information, a schedule of events, list of prosecutors and speakers, and more will be posted as it becomes available.
