06 Oct Upcoming Event on UN Accountability
I am pleased to announce an upcoming experts workshop on UN Accountability on October 19 at Seton Hall Law School.
This workshop will explore the liability of International Organizations for international wrongs, as well address direct, indirect or shared responsibility. It will offer a detailed examination of accountability, and what models of external and internal international dispute resolution currently exist, and should exist in the future. In light of the recent suggestion that victims of international wrongs should be made whole by charitable contributions, it will also discuss redress and compensation for victims of international wrongs.
The keynote address will be given by Professor Philip Alston on The Strengths and Weaknesses of External Accountability.
The program will end with a book launch of the Research Handbook on UN Sanctions and International Law, edited by Professor Larissa van den Herik.
We would welcome participants interested in the subject. After the event, a group will go to the opening panel of ILW at the NYC Bar Association.
