Prince Zeid Ra'ad Zeid Al-Hussein to deliver Distinguished Lecture in International Justice and Human Rights

Prince Zeid Ra'ad Zeid Al-Hussein, permanent representative of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to the United Nations, will deliver a Distinguished Lecture in International Justice and Human Rights titled, "Beyond Nuremberg: The Future of International Criminal Justice," at 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 30 in the International Lounge in Usdan.

Al-Hussein will reflect on the development of international criminal justice since Nuremberg and the seeming challenge faced by tribunals in leading those convicted of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes to acknowledge and repent of their crimes.

The event will be moderated by Donald Ferencz of the Planethood Foundation, which has funded the lecture. The Legal Studies, International & Global Studies and Peace, Conflict & Coexistence departments, and the Heller School's Coexistence and Conflict Program.

It is free and open to the public. For more information and to RSVP (optional), visit the Facebook event page. Email the International Center for Ethics, Justice and Public Life with questions.
