Event Overview

Join the webinar organised by the AIJA Human Rights Committee with the Commercial Fraud Commission on 'International sanctions and human rights: An impossible marriage?' on Wednesday 19 January at 14:00 CET.

The world of international sanctions becomes increasingly complex with each passing year and the penalties for breaching the various regimes continue to grow. While many businesses and clients engaged in global business may seek to simply derisk their exposure to jurisdictions subject to sanctions and embargoes, the humanitarian and human rights implications of doing so are significant.

Our panel discussion moderated by David Savage, Partner & Head of the Financial Crime team at Stewarts in London, will feature Prof. Dr. Philip Haellmigk, LL.M., Head of boutique law firm HAELLMIGK in Munich, Konstantin Bureiko, International Counsel at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, London office and Stéphane de Navacelle, Managing Partner at Navacelle in Paris.  They will answer the following questions:

  • How can lawyers advise clients on the best way to manage their sanctions exposure while seeking to facilitate legitimate flows of funds to those most in need?
  • And what does the 2022 sanctions landscape look like? 

The keynote speech will be delivered by Sébastien Fries, Partner at Kellerhals Carrard in Geneva, delving into whether sanctions from the UN Security Council are out of reach from fair trial guarantees and other fundamental rights. He will provide an insider answer based on the case Al-Dulimi and Montana Management Inc. v. Switzerland dealt with by the European Court of Human Rights.

Join us to discuss these topics and know more.
