Nuremberg Forum 2017

10 years after the Nuremberg Declaration on Peace and Justice

In June 2007, the participants of the “Building Peace and Justice” conference in Nuremberg – high-ranking UN mediators, practitioners in the fields of transitional justice, criminal law and development, as well as civil society representatives from all parts of the world – formulated the “Nuremberg Declaration on Peace and Justice”.

Ten years later, several trends can be observed: mechanisms to apply international criminal law (ICL) have multiplied and a considerable wealth of judicial practice has accumulated; at the same time, the global political context has changed, new crises have unfolded, and some fundamental tenets, spelled out in the Nuremberg Principles and in the agenda of the 2007 conference, are still not generally accepted, notably the avoidance of impunity, the need to promote peace, security, justice and development in tandem, and the need to involve victims in the quest for peace and justice as the bases for societies’ efforts to deal with the past and to achieve well-being for all.

In the Nuremberg Forum 2017, the International Nuremberg Principles Academy wants to elucidate developments since 2007, with a particular focus – in line with the Academy’s mandate – on analyzing progress and challenges in the application of international criminal and humanitarian law and related human rights, and in the fight against impunity.

The Forum will take place in the historic Courtroom 600 on 20 – 21 October 2017.
