Symposium on International Justice: The Trial of Ratko Mladić

Dodd Research Center, and other programs at UConn will host a symposium on the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, culminating in an exclusive preview and post-show discussion of Rob Miller and Henry Singer’s documentary, The Trial of Ratko Mladić (2018).
