Speakers will address issues including but not limited to the scope of international institutional immunities following the decision in Jam in the United States; how may Jam impact the international law understanding of institutional immunities; what steps international organisations may take to limit exposure to domestic proceedings; and crucially, what implications does (if any) does the decision in Jam have for enhancing access to justice for the victims of international institutional conduct. The event takes place on 29 May 2019 from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm at The Humanities Hub, Fluwelen Burgwal 58  2511 CJ Den Haag. For more information and to register, see here
