Gresham College: Prof. Sir Geoffrey Nice Q.C. – Law Lectures 2013/2014 – #5/6 – Burma and North Korea: Avoid the Law unless Convenient


About this series

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

About this lecture

Conflicts in both these countries show the real limits of international law when there are powerful neighbours and geo-political interests to worry about. Both conflicts show how easy it is without international legal intervention for such conflicts to stay little known. In this lecture the history of these conflicts, and the atrocities known to have been committed in each, will be summarised and set beside legal actions that have been attempted but that failed.
