Paving the Path of Human Rights

Synergies between International Criminal Law and UN Agenda 2030

The International Nuremberg Principles Academy will organize a two-day international conference in Nuremberg, Germany, on 3-4 May 2019 dedicated to the advancement of the synergies between international criminal law (ICL) and the United Nations Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development (UN Agenda 2030). The conference will be held at the historic Courtroom 600 of the Nuremberg Palace of Justice, as the city of Nuremberg promotes its strong commitment to human rights related themes as a “City of Peace and Human Rights.”

Due to the nexus of the objectives of ICL and the human rights movement, the conference will identify the elements of ICL that would be able to contribute to the advancement of the UN Agenda 2030 from three angles: Access to Justice, Access to Remedy and the Role of Human Rights Defenders.

The Nuremberg Academy will provide the forum to identify new and promote existing synergies between Sustainable Development Goal 16 aiming to promote “peace, justice and strong institutions” and the principles of ICL. During the conference, experts from various fields, including practitioners of the UN system will critically discuss and analyze the UN Agenda 2030 in the context of conflict prevention and creation of peaceful and sustainable societies as envisaged by the Sustainable Development Goal 16 and its influence in the promotion of human rights in different contexts across the world.

Opening Dialogue - Current Reflections on UN Agenda 2030
Panel I - Building the Foundations for Justice and Rule of Law
Panel II - International Cooperation and Strengthening Institutions to Prevent Conflict
Panel III - Remedy and Protection of Vulnerable Groups
Panel IV - Human Rights Defenders at Risk
Panel V - Mechanisms of Protection of Human Rights Defenders

The conference will start on 3 May at 09:30 and end on 4 May at 16:30.
