By Invitation Only
Organized by the Harris Institute’s Crimes Against Humanity Initiative, in conjunction with the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru, the Latin American and Caribbean Regional Workshop on a Global Convention for Crimes Against Humanity was held in Lima, Peru, on September 28, 2018. As a result of this workshop, a group of expert participants submitted formal comments and observations on the ILC’s Draft Articles in November 2018.
The workshop provided an opportunity for experts in the field of international criminal law and human rights law, members of civil society, and other interested individuals from the Latin American and the Caribbean region to learn about the International Law Commission’s work on a global crimes against humanity treaty and suggest improvements to the text of the Draft Articles.
