USC Shoah Foundation, Leavey Library, Fourth Floor

Join leading experts, prominent scholars, and international diplomats to examine how existing legal mechanisms, international policies, and cooperation can be strengthened and expanded to meet the fundamental challenges of our time.


Following the devastation of the Holocaust and World War II, global leaders united to establish an ambitious new framework that prioritized human rights and the rule of law, and aimed to prevent systemic antisemitism and unchecked aggression.


But the post-war structures that championed democratic values have given way to new realities, as evidenced by the current increase in antisemitic violence, Holocaust denial and distortion, as well as growing mistrust in democracy and the rule of law around the world.


Special guests include the Rt. Hon Lord Eric Pickles, the U.K.'s Special Envoy for Post-Holocaust Issues, and Ellen Germain, the U.S. State Department Special Envoy for Holocaust Issues. The panel discussion will be chaired by Dr. Robert J. Williams, the Finci-Viterbi Executive Director Chair of the University of Southern California’s Shoah Foundation.
