Russia-Ukraine War and the Law: War Crimes, Legal Accountability, and Other Campaigns on the Legal Front
Since Russia’s 2022 invasion of Ukraine began, the law has become its own front, full of maneuvers, counter-attacks, and campaigns. Genocide, martial law, sanctions, the crime of aggression against a sovereign state, war crimes against civilians: the law has proven a tool that Ukrainian authorities have wielded in creative and complicated ways. This panel of experts considers legal aspects of Russia’s war on Ukraine, from martial law to a Putin war crimes tribunal, considering both international and domestic legal doctrines, and thinking about innovations and experiments as well as limitations and risks of “campaigns” on the legal front.
