It is with heavy heart that we learn of the passing of Professor Chandra Lekha Sriram. Chandra was a leading scholar in the field of human rights, transitional justice and conflict and a significant contributor to the work of the International Nuremberg Principles Academy. She recently contributed to the Nuremberg Forum 2017 conference report focusing on “10 Years after the Nuremberg Declaration on Peace and Justice: The Fight Against Impunity at a Crossroad”, with a paper on the relationship between transitional justice and security. Her work was also significant to our complementarity project that the Nuremberg Academy is leading together with the Netherlands-based Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies. She was one of the experts designing the methodology framework, in addition to mapping the context for national responses to international crimes. She was an invaluable part of the team and she will be missed dearly.
