The Human Rights Law Centre and the Nottingham International Law and Security Centre are delighted to invite you to our upcoming event, ‘Ukraine Beyond Aggression: Legal Responses to Russia’s Invasion in 2022 and its Consequences’, taking place on the 21st of February from 14:00-17:30 (GMT).

This event aims to showcase a broad range of research related to Russia’s war against Ukraine examined within the framework of international law, in order to deepen understanding of the ongoing conflict. As we approach the two-year mark since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, this event presents an opportune moment for critical reflection on the role and efficacy of international law in addressing this conflict, and armed conflicts more broadly.

The event will commence with a keynote address given by Judge Mykola Gnatovskyy, Judge of the European Court of Human Rights in respect of Ukraine, followed by a presentation from Maksym Demydenko of the Ukraine War Archive. The Ukraine War Archive compiles digital materials such as videos and audio recordings documenting the Russian invasion, covering life during the war, evacuation, and interviews with eyewitnesses and aims to preserve history and ensure fair representation in legal and public discussions.

We will also be joined by a range of speakers who will present on various topics related to the conflict in Ukraine, including its historical roots, the ongoing refugee crisis, purported justifications for the war, civilian harm under international humanitarian law, international responses to the conflict, accountability efforts, legal responsibility, and more.

This hybrid event will be hosted online and in-person at the Lakeside Arts Centre, in the A30 Lecture Theatre (entrance via the Department of Music building), University Park Campus.
