Conference on UN War Crimes Commission

This year is the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the United Nations War Crimes Commission. Set up by the Allies at about the point where it was clear the tide had turned in the Second World War, it met regularly in London throughout 1944 and 1945 in order to prepare the post-war prosecutions. This was a seminal moment in the development of international criminal law. A conference to commemorate the Commission and to reflect on its work will be held at the School of Oriental and African Studies of University of London on 10-11 September 2013, under the presidency of Richard Goldstone.
