Event description

Description

War is not inevitable. It can be limited, if not defeated outright, by law fairly applied and enforced. As we reflect on Remembrance Day, and note the 70th anniversary of the Geneva Conventions that were developed to restrict the impact of war, come hear David Crane, Founding Chief Prosecutor of the Special Court for Sierra Leone who investigated, indicted, and prosecuted Charles Taylor, the first sitting head of state for war crimes and crimes against humanity, talk about how law can make war less likely, or at least less lethal.

This event is co-sponsored by the Balsillie School of International Affairs, the Canadian Red Cross, Conrad Grebel University College, Wilfrid Laurier University and Project Ploughshares.
