The International Nuremberg Principles Academy is organising the Nuremberg Forum 2023 on the topic “Legally Undeniable: Criminalising Genocide Denial”. The conference will take place from 19 October, 3 pm CET to 21 October 2023, 3 pm CET, at the historic Courtroom 600 of the Nuremberg Palace of Justice, with the possibility of online and on-site participation.

Genocide denial is more prevalent than ever and continues to pose severe challenges to accountability efforts and post-conflict societies. Through the refusal and negation of historical facts and the circumstances surrounding the perpetration of genocide, denial can contribute to the cultivation of hatred, societal instability, threats against vulnerable groups or even the repetition of atrocities.

The Nuremberg Forum 2023 will address the timely topic of genocide denial, by exploring it as a concept and in context, what it is, how it manifests itself and how to regulate it. With regard to genocide denial, the main focus will be on the Holocaust, the Rwandan genocide and the Srebrenica massacre. Experts will assess what multilateral and national efforts have been undertaken to address genocide denial, including prevention and punishment. Special attention will also be on legal responses to denial, including relevant jurisprudence of international criminal tribunals related to speech crimes.
