Professor Akhavan was the first Legal Advisor to the Prosecutor's Office of the International Criminal Tribunals for Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda and played a key role in developing its foundational jurisprudence. He also has considerable experience in post-conflict peace-building and international dispute settlement, having advised the UN on transitional justice, appeared as counsel before international courts and tribunals on behalf of sovereigns, and served on the board of directors of human rights NGOs. The lecture will be followed by wine and cheese. Organized by the Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies, Concordia University.
When life hands you lemons, make lemonade. When life hands Vancouver a winter of snow, go snowshoeing! Join us at Cypress Mountain for fresh air, snow and nature trails. Or, if strapping glorified tennis rackets to your feet isn't your speed, enjoy a cup of hot cocoa by a roaring fire in the chalet. Bring the family, bring your friends - and bring your mittens!
What's the difference between a single malt and a blend? Highland, Lowland and Islay? If you've always been curious or simply want to know more, join us for the shebang at Shebeen and brush up on your knowledge of Irish - and Irish whiskey.
