Professor David Crane, founder of the Syrian Accountability Project, to speak at Symposium

Dr. David Crane, Syracuse University Law Professor and founder of The Syrian Accountability Project (SAP), will discuss with participants the case against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and efforts to bring him to justice.   The Syrian Accountability Project is an internationally recognized cooperative effort between activists, non-governmental organizations, students, and other interested parties to document war crimes and crimes against humanity in the context of the Syrian Crisis. Now in its fifth phase, the project aims to produce non-partisan, high quality analysis of open source materials and to catalogue that information relative to applicable bodies of law; including, the Geneva Conventions, the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, and Syrian Penal Law.
