A Dialogue on Responsibility, Art, Celebrity, Nuclear Weapons, and Making Movies with UN Messenger of Peace Michael Douglas and GSI President Jonathan Granoff



TIPS Chair Randy Aliment provided us with this information to share on the Blog.

At the 2012 Spring Meeting of the American Bar Association Section of International Law held in April in New York City, Mr. Douglas and Mr. Granoff held an entertaining, substantive, and inspiring wide ranging dialogue in front of an audience of several hundred of the world's top lawyers. The audience included senior  and present UN officials, such as Hans Correll (http://www.havc.se/)  who was Under Secretary General for Legal Affairs and Legal Counsel to the UN from 1994-2004, and Ben Ferenz (http://www.benferencz.org/)  a prosecutor at the Nuremberg Trials who  has led efforts in the creation of the  International Criminal Court.
The dialogue was exceptionally well received and is part of a series of such dialogues. You might also enjoy these dialogues as well:
With Ted Sorensen and Robert McNamara
With Sir Bob Geldof and remarks by Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Corrigan Maguire
