1st Elisabeth Käsemann Symposium Nuremberg

 

On 19 June 2017, the International Nuremberg Academy hosted the 1st Elisabeth Käsemann Symposium Nuremberg which took place in the historic Courtroom 600 of the Nuremberg Palace of Justice.

The subject of the symposium was the "International Criminal Prosecution of Governmental Crimes in Germany and Latin America: 1933 – 1976 – today".

Renowned experts from Germany and Latin America analyzed the efforts which are employed to enhance democratic rule-of-law structures and to protect human rights. It further was discussed how Germany and Latin American countries deal with State-sponsored crimes. They considered the development in this field as well as the current situation and also looked at the possibilities and limits of international and transnational co-operation concerning the investigation and the prosecution of such crimes. In addition, the discussion  covered the consequences and opportunities for a society when it deals with its authoritarian past from a legal angle.
