Events and Announcements: 25 July 2021


International Nuremberg Principles Academy (Nuremberg Academy): The International Nuremberg Principles Academy (Nuremberg Academy) is pleased to announce that the registration for the Nuremberg Forum 2021 is now open. The forum will take place online on 15 and 16 October 2021.

Dedicated to marking the 70th anniversary of the Nuremberg Principles, the conference will examine the Nuremberg Principles today. It will reflect on the legal framework and system(s) established after WWII to tackle impunity and critically analyse whether this framework or system(s), or the fight against impunity in general, are living up to the Nuremberg Principles. The forum will seek to understand what challenges, if any, persist in terms of strengthening the common fight against impunity and towards sustainable peace through justice. In pursuit of these aims, the Forum poses two main questions: 1) What is the framework enforcing the fight against impunity; and 2) Has the fight against impunity been living up to the Nuremberg Principles?

The conference is particularly relevant to experts, professionals, and students interested in international criminal justice, international criminal law, international relations and history, political and other social sciences, and has a focus both on academia as well as practice. We would like to especially invite young scholars, lawyers, and practitioners to join our discussion.

The programme can be accessed through the Nuremberg Academy’s official website and you can register for the event here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the event.

The Nuremberg Forum is an annual international conference organised by the Nuremberg Academy. It brings together leading scholars, practitioners, policymakers, and civil society, and provides a forum for dialogue and critical exchange on contemporary international criminal law matters. Located in Nuremberg, the birthplace of modern international criminal law, the Nuremberg Academy offers a neutral space, and is thus an apt setting, for the necessary dialogue on the development of international criminal law and the implementation and interpretation of the Nuremberg Principles today.
