Inaugural Conference sponsored by the Program in Holocaust and Human Rights Studies at Cardozo Law School in NY.
The Nuremberg Trials: A Reappraisal and Their Legacy
On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the trials
On March 27th and 28th, the Program in Holocaust and Human Rights Studies at Cardozo Law School will hold its inaugural Conference entitled: "The Nuremberg Trials: A Reappraisal and Their Legacy" on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the trials.
The Conference aims to examine both the trials of the major Nazi war criminals held by the International Military Tribunal and the subsequent so-called zonal trials held in the four occupied zones of Germany under Control Council Law No. 10. The Conference will analyze the impact of the Nuremberg principles that came out of the trials on international law over the last sixty years, and specifically upon the the presently existing international tribunals: ICTY, ITCR, the Special Court for Sierra Leone, and the recently created ICC.
Also, the Conference will explore the relevance of the Nuremberg principles upon the contemplated Iraqi War Crimes Tribunal and current approaches to preventing or punishing the crime of genocide.
