Mallinder, L. (Invited speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited or keynote talk at national or international conference

Description

Ukraine is in the seventh year of an armed conflict. With the Russian occupation of Crimea and two Kremlin-backed puppet ’republics’ often resorting to hostilities and human rights abuses, Kyiv is attempting to ensure that both the Russian state and individuals are held accountable.

To this end, Ukraine has reached out to a number of international courts, most notably the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court. However, more steps need to be taken domestically.

This two-part virtual roundtable will discuss Ukraine’s emerging transitional justice policy and explore the experience of other conflict-affected states that could assist Ukraine’s efforts.
