Nuremberg Forum 2023

"Legally Undeniable: Criminalising Genocide Denial"

The International Nuremberg Principles Academy (Nuremberg Academy) is organising the Nuremberg Forum 2023 from 19 to 21 October 2023 at the historic Courtroom 600 of the Nuremberg Palace of Justice, with the possibility of online participation. Prior registration is required.

The Nuremberg Forum 2023 will address the timely topic of genocide denial, by exploring denialism as a concept and in context, what it is, how it manifests itself and how to regulate it. With regard to genocide denial the main focus will be on the Holocaust, the Rwandan and the Srebrenica genocide. Experts will assess what multilateral and national efforts have been undertaken to address genocide denial, including prevention and punishment. Special attention will also be on legal responses to denial including relevant jurisprudence of international criminal tribunals related to speech crimes such as incitement to commit genocide, with particular focus on the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda.
