On March 11, the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin, charging him with orchestrating the abduction of thousands of Ukrainian children and transferring them to Russia for adoption. It’s the first time a major world leader has been indicted by the ICC.  Meanwhile, proposals are gaining momentum for an international tribunal to prosecute Russian aggression.

Join our expert panelists from Ukraine, London, and the US for a roundtable discussion on how these developments will affect international criminal law, international institutions, and the course of world events.


Moderated by Dr. Mark EllisExecutive Director – International Bar Association

Following the discussion, Scharf and Sterio will be signing complimentary copies of their award-winning book, “The Syrian Conflict’s Impact on International Law”
