Join us for the final Rethinking SLIC conference with fellow academics and practitioners from around the globe at the University of Amsterdam! 

As the situations in Gaza, Ukraine, Syria or Sudan show, international crimes and serious human rights violations do not take place in isolation, but are facilitated by a broad and cross-border network of supporting actors. These secondary actors, be it States, corporations, or individuals, often escape liability. The Rethinking SLIC project aims to develop and enhance the legal framework, based on theory and practice, for determining the outer limits of ‘secondary liability’ for international crimes and serious human rights violations. 

After almost six years, the working groups of the project will come together at the UvA to present their findings on the applicable legal framework in civil law, criminal law, and the Law of State Responsibility, against the backdrop of a comprehensive theoretical framework and human rights norms. Presentations will be accompanied by input from renowned practitioners and academics in the field, including Harmen van der Wilt, Channa Samkalden, and André Nollkaemper, among others.


Where? Room A3.15 Roeterseiland Campus, Roetersstraat 11, 1018 WB Amsterdam
