New publication: Article on the Nuremberg Principles


In a new article for the French journal Délibérée, Dr Viviane Dittrich and Natacha Bracq address the ongoing significance of the Nuremberg Principles while outlining critiques and challenges to international criminal justice today. The article entitled “Passé et present des principes de Nuremberg” emphasises the international consensus that led to the formulation of the Nuremberg Principles by the International Law Commission in 1950, ongoing challenges and the uneven implementation at the international and national level to the present day.

The article in French was published in a special issue dedicated to international crimes with a focus on French perspectives (“Crimes internationaux: une justice verouillée?”). Délibérée is a French journal with a focus on critical reflection on justice, law and rights. The journal, led by the magistrates’ trade union (Syndicat de la magistrature) and published by La Découverte, covers theory, institutions, discourse and practice by bringing together academic and practitioner voices.
