“Another Legacy of Nuremberg: Gender in Focus” - October 19, 2021

Presented by Sir Howard Morrison QC

‘A personal look at how gender and war crimes are interfaced and the progress since Word War 2.

A lesser known example of acute policy prejudice by the Wehrmacht and the ripples that have persisted from Operation Barbarossa, the sequels have grown through the ad hoc tribunals and the International Criminal Court in Cambodia, Africa and the Balkans.

Where we are, where we are going, and how do we best get there. We are all involved.’
