"The Past, Present and Future of International Justice: The Role of the International Criminal Court"
April 15, 2013 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Albert and Ethel Herzstein Theater
Ambassador David John Scheffer is an American lawyer and diplomat who served as the first U.S. ambassador-at-large for war crimes issues during President Bill Clinton's second term in office. Scheffer will discuss the rise of modern international justice from Nuremberg to the present and beyond, drawing from his recent award-winning book "All the Missing Souls: A Personal History of the War Crimes Tribunals," which recounts his own experiences during the 1990s in the creation of five major war crimes tribunals. Scheffer currently teaches at the Northwestern University School of Law, where he directs the Center for International Human Rights. Scheffer received bachelor’s degrees from Harvard and Oxford University and an LL.M. from Georgetown University Law Center. Tickets are $5 for HMH members and $8 for nonmembers. Seniors and students may pay $4 at the door. Seating is limited, and advance registration is requested. Visit http://www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx to register online.
