Nick Grono, the Deputy President (Operations) of the International Crisis Group, will meet with LAPA graduate students for a lunch discussion on May 6th. His topic will be "The Role of International Justice in Preventing and Resolving Deadly Conflict." The talk itself will focus primarily on the ICC, but will range a bit more broadly and look at the role that this and other international criminal tribunals have played in spurring peace initiatives and, perhaps, obstructing peace deals. It will be very much a policy-focused presentation. Please RSVP to Judi Rivkin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
