Online event: Practical Guide
This practical guide will provide you with some basic information regarding the Nuremberg Forum, the main annual event of the International Nuremberg Principles Academy (Nuremberg Academy), which takes place every year in October. It includes some practical information regarding the online conference and your participation. We look forward to virtually welcoming you in Nuremberg, the Palace of Justice, and Courtroom 600.
General information and duration of the event
The Nuremberg Forum 2021 is dedicated to marking the 70th anniversary of the formulation of the Nuremberg Principles, the principles of international law recognized in the Charter of the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg and the judgment of that tribunal. The core question for this high-level conference is to assess whether the common fight against impunity has been living up to the expectations and standards set out by the Nuremberg Principles. It seeks to understand what challenges, if any, persist in terms of strengthening the common fight against impunity and towards sustainable peace through justice.
While the Nuremberg Forum usually takes place at the historic Courtroom 600 of the Nuremberg Palace of Justice, the location of the major Nuremberg Trial held before the International Military Tribunal, this year, the event is taking place online, through the Nuremberg Forum 2021 virtual platform, which can be accessed through www.nurembergacademy.org.
The Nuremberg Forum 2021 will be a full two-day event and will take place on 15 and 16 October 2021. Please see further information on the programme in the programme section on the Nuremberg Forum 2021 virtual platform.
The event is in English.
Format of the event
The Nuremberg Forum 2021 will incorporate the format of a series of panel discussions. It will open with welcoming remarks, opening statement and two keynote addresses. The programme will be accompanied with some interactive tools and side events.
