The Klatsky Lecture in Human Rights was endowed in 2001 by University Trustee, Bruce Klatsky. The 2014 Klatsky Lecture will be presented by Dr. Mark Ellis (JD/PhD), Executive Director of the International Bar Association (IBA), an organization comprised of 205 national bar associations, major international law firms and 50,000 individual members from around the world. Dr. Ellis is the author of the recent book, “Sovereignty and Justice: Creating Domestic War Crimes Courts within the Principle of Complementarity" (Oxford University Pres, 2014). His lecture will focus on the benefits and shortcomings of the growing use of social media for reporting atrocities. He will discuss a potential solution to these challenges through the creation of a method for documenting international crimes that could lead to increased accountability for international crimes, and ultimately, deter future atrocities.
