About this series

Six public lectures by Sir Geoffrey Nice QC, delivered in his role as Gresham Professor of Law.

About this lecture

Informal Tribunals dealing with armed conflicts include that established for the Vietnam war by Bertrand Russell.  This – and other similar tribunals – showed how the citizen is not bound by the willingness of the great international organisations to intervene in known atrocities.  The lecture will summarise the factual issues, show how international legal systems were unable to cope and focus on the work and findings of the informal tribunals.
