Ukraine Crisis Rapid Reaction Briefing Session - Edinburgh Law School
From Iain Mcgee
Ukraine Crisis Rapid Reaction Briefing Session
Experts from the University of Edinburgh Law School invite you to a virtual event dedicated to thinking through the international legal challenges raised by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Through short, policy-focused presentations, we will offer a range of perspectives across the field of international law to think through how legal frameworks can respond to the crisis in innovative and robust ways. In particular, we will think through issues of criminal accountability, the implications on geopolitical security of international borders, rule of law challenges for a post-conflict Ukraine, the shifting landscape of international financial sanctions as well as a multi-stakeholder approach to regional and global governance. A series of short presentations will be followed by a Q&A session.
