The symposium will focus on international prosecution of individuals for crimes, and will examine how such prosecutions introduce new understandings of jurisdiction and accountability, as individuals are being punished for crimes against humanity and violations of international humanitarian law. This symposium will also create an opportunity to consider the changing understandings of human rights in a post cold war context.Co-sponsored with the Center for Global Peace and Conflict Studies.
