This page presents a selection of articles on justice initiatives for war related crimes in Ukraine.
Our publications are aimed at both experts in international justice - who do not want to miss out on the latest news on justice in Ukraine - and at readers who are not so keen on law but who nevertheless wish to understand the legal proceedings that have multiplied since the beginning of the war. Some speak of "lawfare" to describe this unprecedented legal momentum.
In these articles, we discuss the national courts in Ukraine, the International Criminal Court (ICC), the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) and, more broadly, the ongoing debates on justice after Russia's invasion of Ukraine. In addition to the prosecutions for "war crimes", which are at the heart of the subject, we also talk of "crimes against humanity", "crime of aggression" or "genocide".
