Nuremberg Forum 2024 “For Every Child: Protecting Children's Rights in Armed Conflict”

 

The International Nuremberg Principles Academy cordially invites you to attend the Nuremberg Forum 2024, which will take place from 10 to 12 October 2024. The conference will explore themes relating to the protection of children’s rights in the context of armed conflict.

The Convention of the Rights of the Child is the most ratified human rights treaty in history. And yet, despite such wide ratification, children across the world continue to live in vulnerable and fragile settings prone to the violation of a spectrum of rights enshrined in the convention. Nowhere is this fragility more amplified than in contexts of armed conflict.

The Nuremberg Forum 2024 will trace the historical evolutions of the international human rights frameworks protecting children and highlight its achievements and dissonances. The conference discussions will also delve into the strategies and experiences most relevant to international courts when prosecuting crimes against children. The exchanges will incorporate the perspectives of domestic contexts and relevant transitional justice policies that enhance the protection of children’s rights.

More information will be made available in due course. (km)
