Following the success of last year’s conference, panels this year will consider recent developments in international and domestic law, centred around the theme of closing the impunity gap: developments in accountability for individuals and corporates for international crimes. 

Keynote speaker

We are delighted to introduce Rodney Dixon QC, Temple Garden Chambers, as our keynote speaker. 

Session 1: Crimes against Humanity: will there ever be a UK prosecution? 

Our first panel will consider the potential impact of the International Law Commission’s draft articles on Crimes Against Humanity, which will be sent to the U.N. General Assembly in late 2019 and may serve as the basis for a U.N. Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Crimes against Humanity.

Session 2: Business & Human Rights: boardroom obligations in a changing world

Our second panel considers the uncertain legal landscape that companies are currently facing, particularly in the context of international crimes and human rights. It will consider recent developments in this field, including the ILC’s draft articles on Crimes Against Humanity and the draft Binding Treaty on Business and Human Rights which specifically envisage corporate liability for the most serious crimes and human rights abuses and will ask what these developments might mean for companies.
