On Thursday, 28 February Carla Del Ponte, former Chief Prosecutor of the U.N. international criminal law tribunals, will present her latest book, Gli Impuniti. I crimini in Siria e la mia lotta per la verità.  In this volume, the author narrates five years of her work as a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic, from which she resigned in 2017. 

Both crimes and criminals of the Syrian war, which broke out in 2011 in the aftermath of the Arab Uprisings, remain unpunished. The talk will be held in the room A11 Università della Svizzera italiana, 6:30 pm, in the context of the series organised by the MEM Freethinking Platform “Beyond chaos. Geopolitical and cultural configurations of the Middle East Mediterranean”:
