Event: War in Ukraine – Institutional Responses and International Law, 22 March 2022

The international legal system provides a variety of institutional mechanisms to respond to gross violations of international law, including the crime of aggression, breaches of the prohibition on the use of force and war crimes. This seminar addresses the avenues being considered and/or utilised to respond to Russia’s war against Ukraine. These options include the UN Security Council, the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court.
