Václav Havel Human Rights Prize Conference 2022 | Panel II: The wheels of justice


The jubilee 10th international conference in honour of the laureate of the 2022 Václav Havel Human Prize | Crime and Punishment : Crimes against peace and humanity and the wheels of justice

Massive violations of human rights, such as the ones occurring as a result of the Russian aggression against Ukraine, not only present horrific scenes of human suffering and depravity but pose difficult questions of transformational justice. Apart from the imperative of an immediate and unconditional end to the atrocities, it is incumbent on humanity to document and record for posterity every single instance of human rights violation and to bring to justice those responsible, in order to prevent the repetition of such crimes.
