Zoom Webinar (1h30 mins) + Q & A (45 mins)
Pete Weatherby QC will Chair the event and help frame the discussion. Prof Javaid Rehman, Member of the Coordination Committee of the Special Procedures United Nations Human Rights Office, will deliver the keynote speech on why this discussion today is as relevant today as it was after the horrors of WWII.

Aarif Abraham and Kate Stone will talk about the law relating to genocide, the difficulty of its application and lessons for the future. Our host will be Dr John Haskell. Further details about the event including the speaker’s bios can be found on AU’s website.
The webinar is organised by Aarif Abraham, Convener, International Law at Garden Court North Chambers & Acting Director at Accountability Unit; Dr. John D. Haskell, Co-Director at Manchester International Law Centre; and Philip Drake, Director of the University of Manchester’s Justice Hub.
