Talk on Legacies of International Criminal Tribunals by Dr. Viviane Dittrich in Hong Kong


On 21 November, Dr. Viviane Dittrich, Deputy Director of the Nuremberg Academy, was invited to speak at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in Hong Kong. In the Faculty of Law Research Seminar Series she gave a talk on the topic "From Nuremberg to Rome and 20 Years On: Legacies of International Criminal Tribunals". Against the backdrop of the closure of the ad hoc tribunals and hybrid courts, Dr. Dittrich explained how the question of legacy has become increasingly topical at the international criminal tribunals. In this context, she also reflected on the Nuremberg legacies in light of the mandate and work of the International Nuremberg Principles Academy today.
