International Conference: War against Ukraine - Accountability and Responses
The University of Bergen and the Embassy of Ukraine in Norway are hosting a high-profile international conference on the war against Ukraine, one year after the start of Russia’s full-scale military attack.
A year has passed since the start of Russia’s full-scale military attack on Ukraine on the 24th of February 2022. To mark the date, the University of Bergen and the Embassy of Ukraine in Norway are hosting a high-profile international conference on the war. The discussions will focus on how to secure justice for Ukraine.
Watch the conference here, Friday from 10.00.
There is an international need for effective justice mechanisms. Faced with the violations of international law in Ukraine, we have invited scholars and representatives from a variety of organizations to discuss the preconditions for possible international prosecution of the crime of aggression, war crimes, and other international crimes.
The conference will also address Norway’s response to the war in Ukraine, including military support, the importance of continued university education, supporting civil society organizations, and broad economic cooperation in times of war.
