Congress "Human Rights, Future Generations & Crimes in the Nuclear Age"

Dear IPPNW Members

Our Congress Website is online – including information about the preliminary programme, speakers and the possibility to register online.

Our meeting takes place on 14–17 September 2017 and offers the chance to link health and human rights issues. The conference will bring together lawyers and medical experts as well as victims of nuclear accidents, nuclear testing and uranium mining from all over the world. We will learn from past lawsuits and show how to support current and future cases. One of the key factors that determines whether a lawsuit is successful or not is to proof the bodily harm. The nuclear industry tries to deny or down play these impacts. However, recent evidence presented by medical research indicates that the risk of ionising radiation to humans and living beings is higher than previously assumed. Finally, law and medicine should not only focus on the past and present, but also try to prevent future harm. The conference will also discuss the legal developments which could strengthen the protection.
We kindly invite everybody to attend the congress! Please register online and forward this information to interested parties.

On behalf of the organisation committee
