Thu., Nov. 30, 2023, 5 – 6:30 p.m.

Focusing on the themes covered in Cécile Aptel's new book, Atrocity Crimes, Children and International Criminal Courts, this talk will center on the challenges international criminal courts face when handling atrocity crimes involving children. International criminal courts have paid inconsistent and limited attention to children and have instead focused on the experiences of adults and atrocity crimes. There are many structural, legal, financial, and cultural reasons for this but the result has been that children affected by atrocity crimes have been largely rendered invisible.

This event is part of a series of events commemorating the 75th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which will be celebrated on December 10, 2023.
