Solving the Syria Conundrum
Please join Michael Scharf, acting dean and a 2005 Nobel Prize nominee for a discussion examining questions concering war crimes in Syria.
Scharf is the co-founder and director of the Public International Law and Policy Group, which helped in the prosecution of major war criminals such as Slobodan Milosevic, Charles Taylor and Saddam Hussein. The group is based in Washington, D.C., and has eight offices around the world. The policy group recently assisted in drafting the Statute for a Special Tribunal for atrocities committed in Syria since March 2011. He also assisted in the training of judges in Iraq's Hussein trial, and is co-author of Enemy of the State: The Trial and Execution of Saddam Hussein.
A reception will take place following the discussion.
