Panel Discussions: "Legal Challenges Posed by the Large-Scale Russian Invasion of Ukraine"


Location: Zoom

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has caused tremendous human suffering, dislocation, and economic devastation. It is no exaggeration to say the invasion has created the largest humanitarian crisis in Europe since World War II. While the invasion is still ongoing and its outcome is far from certain, it has already created numerous political and legal questions that demand reflection. What, if anything, can the law do to stop the conflict, provide just redress to the victims, and prevent future invasions like this in the future? Does the invasion undermine our belief in the international order and institutions called upon to maintain it? What could we learn at this point about the challenges posed by the invasion, and is reform of global security infrastructure possible, or even needed?
