Impunity Kills – Lessons from Syria and Ukraine

Dansk Institut for Partier og Demokrati (DIPD)

Debat - EU og udenrigspolitik - Andet

This year’s Folkemødet is taking place in a context of rising global tensions and, most importantly, in a world facing extraordinary challenges to the rules-based international order. Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine and its war crimes there have been emboldened among others by a lack of accountability for egregious crimes against humanity, such as those committed, for instance, in Syria. There cannot be peace and stability without accountability, and what is at stake is the rules-based international order itself. The Syria-Ukraine Network (SUN) – a coalition of organizations and individuals in Syria, Ukraine and abroad aiming to stop and expose war crimes in Syria and Ukraine – organize the panel discussion Impunity Kills – Lessons from Syria and Ukraine. Three members of SUN will be represented on the panel: the Centre for Civil Liberties (CCL) Ukraine, the Syrian Emergency Task Force (SETF) and the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR).
