The Plea of Humanity to Law
    90 minutes, At the Lodge
    Sunday, January 19 1:00 p.m. #GlobalWatchdogs

    The pursuit of a just world through criminal justice (“a plea of humanity to law,” as Ben Ferencz phrased it during the Nuremburg trials) is an ideal complicated by complexity, contradiction, moral dilemmas, and politics. A group including Edet Belzberg (director, Watchers of the Sky), Anna Neistat and Ole Solvang (Human Rights Watch and the subjects of E-TEAM), and moderator Refik Hodzic (director of communications, International Center for Transitional Justice) examine the international community’s role in preventing atrocities, the work of documenting war crimes, and the effort to address legal injustice in sovereign nations.

    Open to all credential holders and the general public on a space available basis.
