On 23 June, ELAC Deputy Director Federica D’Alessandra spoke on a panel discussion on the crime of aggression in Ukraine hosted by the Stimson Center’s Atrocity Prevention Study Group (APSG). The APSG is a forum for policymakers and practitioners to discuss both practical and theoretical aspects of atrocity prevention on an unclassified, non-partisan and non-attributable basis. It connects stakeholders inside and outside of US government with scholars and experts to share resources and knowledge on atrocity prevention and identify challenges, good practices, lessons learned and policy options. Federica’s presentation addressed what the crime of aggression is, how the definition of the aggression has evolved since the Nuremberg trials, and the various options for criminal accountability.
