Notes & Changes

This event is open to anyone but priority will be given to members of the University, particularly students and tutors of the Summer School in International Human Rights Law and the MSc in International Human Rights Law. This is an in-person event.  

Leading international criminal lawyer Professor Sellers will reflect on the efficacy of tools within international criminal law to address the matter of colonial crime. Former UN Special Rapporteur on the Environment & Human Rights John Knox will address the link between colonial crime and environmental degradation. Both speakers will seek to comment on the extent to which the book offers insights into the debate on reparations and system change.
