Before Victims Become Victims: Preventing Genocide and Mass Murder
Sponsor
Klatsky Seminar in Human Rights
presented by Frederick K. Cox International Law Center
JAN 15, 2008
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom (A59)

One of the world's leading experts in international law, Professor Reisman will criticize the ex-post punishment approach that has been taken toward genocide and mass killing, instead of an ex ante effective policy of prevention. Examing contemporary case studies, including Darfur and Burma, he will discuss how international law and international institutions can be used to identify situations ripe for genocide and to intervene at an early stage before they devolve into mass atrocities.
Past Klatsky lecturers include Pulitzer Prize-winning author and human rights advocate Samantha Power, former Chief Prosecutor of the Yugoslavia War Crimes Tribunal Richard Goldstone, and Executive Director of Human Rights Watch Kenneth Roth.
