East West Street: On the Origins of Genocide and Crimes against Humanity


On Wednesday, February 28, the HLHW series will feature Philippe Sands.

A professor of law and director of the Centre on International Courts and Tribunals at University College London, Sands is a regular commentator on the BBC and CNN and writes frequently about international law for leading newspapers. He was prominently featured in My Nazy Legacy, a documentary released in 2015.

This event will be held in the Hojel Auditorium at 7:00 p.m. with a reception and book signing to follow. Copies of East West Street will be available for purchase at the event from Warwick’s. RSVP is required at
