About the Dialogues
The Law Dialogs is an historic gathering of current and former international war crimes tribunal prosecutors, renowned academics, and legal experts, who are invited to speak on current issues centered on a theme. This year’s Dialogs returns to Chautauqua, New York, to continue the tradition started over a decade ago. Since the first IHL Dialogs in August 29, 2007, the conference continues to reach a wider audience allowing for meaningful discussions concerning contemporary international criminal law. After 12 years of successful Dialogs, we are revamping the format; this year marks the inaugural Dialogs Round-table, chaired by Prosecutor Brenda J. Hollis. While we will continue to host speakers for keynote addresses, the primary focus is on the breakout sessions, which will create the Chautauqua Principles issued at the Dialogs' conclusion.

Held at the Chautauqua Institution, a renowned arts and cultural community located in upstate New York, the International Humanitarian Law Dialogs are hosted by Case Western Reserve University School of Law and The Syracuse University School of Law. The Dialogs, year after year, have brought together the current and former Chief Prosecutors from The International Criminal Court, The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, The Special Court for Sierra Leone, Special Tribunal for Lebanon, The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, and other leading scholars and professionals in the field of International Humanitarian Law.
