The International Nuremberg Principles Academy (Nuremberg Academy) is pleased to announce that the registration for the Nuremberg Forum 2021 is now open.

The online event will be held on 15 and 16 October 2021.

Dedicated to marking the 70th anniversary of the Nuremberg Principles, the conference will examine the Nuremberg Principles today. It will reflect on the legal framework and system(s) established after WWII to tackle impunity and critically analyze whether this framework or system(s), or the fight against impunity in general, are living up to the Nuremberg Principles. The forum will seek to understand what challenges, if any, persist in terms of strengthening the common fight against impunity and towards sustainable peace through justice.

It poses two main questions: 1) What is the framework enforcing the fight against impunity; and 2) Has the fight against impunity been living up to the Nuremberg Principles?

CFP Deadline: COVID-19 Infodemic - Between Law, Ethics and Fake News

Two special issues of International Journal for the Semiotics of Law and a special issue of Comparative Legilinguistics will be dedicated to Infodemic – Between Law, Ethics and Fake News.

The 2020 pandemic of Covid-19 virus struck the globalized world unexpectedly, resulting in the misleading predictions of fatalities information chaos and fake news. Aware of the consequential impact of distortions and half-truths, the World Health Organization stresses that societies suffer not only as a direct result of disease, social-distancing but also over-abundance of information that makes it hard for people to find trustworthy sources and reliable guidance. The spread of rumors and misinformation has been possible also due to the prevalence of distance communication methods which enable publication of anything without
any limits or peer review as verification. Such pieces of news, if skillfully posted, may reach enormous numbers of people causing harm and unpredictable consequences.

Abstracts are due December 10, 2021. Submissions may be in English or French and should be sent to aleksandra.matulewska@gmail.com, valwagnerfr@yahoo.com, and marusek@hawaii.edu.
