The International Nuremberg Principles Academy (Nuremberg Academy) is pleased to announce that the registration for the Nuremberg Forum 2021 is now open.

The online event will be held on 15 and 16 October 2021.

Dedicated to marking the 70th anniversary of the Nuremberg Principles, the conference will examine the Nuremberg Principles today. It will reflect on the legal framework and system(s) established after WWII to tackle impunity and critically analyze whether this framework or system(s), or the fight against impunity in general, are living up to the Nuremberg Principles. The forum will seek to understand what challenges, if any, persist in terms of strengthening the common fight against impunity and towards sustainable peace through justice.

It poses two main questions: 1) What is the framework enforcing the fight against impunity; and 2) Has the fight against impunity been living up to the Nuremberg Principles?
