Crimes Against Peace - Aggression in the 21st Century

The 4th International Humanitarian Law Dialogs is an historic gathering of renowned international prosecutors from Nuremberg through present day, and leading professionals in the academic fields. A unique, two-day symposium, the Dialogs are held annually on the picturesque Chautauqua grounds. The gathering allows participants, their guests, and the public to engage in meaningful dialog concerning international criminal law's past, present, and future.

The Dialogs culminated with the issuance of the Fourth Chautauqua Declaration, signed by the prosecutors in attendance. Click on the link below to view the entire Declaration.
