The English-language premiere of the most recent documentary produced by the ICTY Outreach Programme, Dubrovnik and Crimes against Cultural Heritage, will take place on Thursday, 16 February 2017, at 4:00p.m. in The Hague University of Applied Sciences (“Speaker’s corner” venue).
Dubrovnik and Crimes against Cultural Heritage provides an overview of the Tribunal’s work in adjudicating crimes of systematic destruction of institutions dedicated to religion, education or culture. Using the trials for crimes committed during the 1991 siege of Dubrovnik as a case-study, the film shows how the ICTY advanced the understanding of crimes against cultural heritage and the criminal context in which they take place.
Prior to the screening, ICTY President, Judge Carmel Agius, will deliver the opening remarks. Following the screening a panel discussion will be held about the issues in adjudicating crimes against cultural heritage and will focus on the ICTY's role in bringing these crimes to the forefront of international criminal justice.
Due to limited capacity, please confirm your attendance no later than Monday 13 February 2017 to Jennifer Michael to michael3 [at] un.org.
