The Bystander Dilemma – Utah Law Review Symposium @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Mar 31 @ 8:00 am – 3:00 pm
The Bystander Dilemma - Utah Law Review Symposium @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law |  |  |

Past, present, and future, the world is full of opportunities for bystanders to take meaningful action to prevent horrific crimes. Yet, far too often bystanders remain complacent. In Nazi Germany, an untold number of bystanders watched as millions were subjected to the most heinous treatment in the history of the modern world. Today, bystanders have an opportunity to prevent atrocities from being thrust onto victims. Whether they are refugees from Syria or college freshmen on our own campuses, bystanders have an opportunity to act; yet, they often choose not to.

Inspired by University of Utah College of Law Professor Amos Guiora’s forthcoming book, The Crime of Complicity: The Bystander in the Holocaust, the Utah Law Review is pleased to announce its 2016/2017 Symposium: The Bystander Dilemma: The Holocaust, War Crimes, And Sexual Assaults. The symposium will critically examine the legal and moral obligations of bystanders. The symposium will be held throughout the day on March 31st, 2017.

The symposium will first consider bystanders during the Holocaust. No other tragedy can highlight the bystander dilemma like the Holocaust, because so many individuals had an opportunity to act; but most failed. The Holocaust panel will be composed of leading academics, professionals, and theologians to address the bystander dilemma and provide a context for the remainder of the symposium.

The following two panels will consider the bystander dilemma in the context of modern day War Crimes and sexual assaults. These panels, also, will be led by leading academics and professionals. For a complete list of the distinguished speakers contributing to the symposium, please see the attached enclosure.

S.J. Quinney College of Law Dean and Jefferson B. and Rita E. Forham Presidential Professor Robert Adler will provide opening remarks. A keynote address will be given by University Professor and Professor of Law Jeremy Waldon of New York University.

The symposium is open to the public and all are invited and encouraged to join. Furthermore, the distinguished speakers will publish articles in a symposium issue of the Utah Law Review. The symposium issue will include an article written by Harvard Law School Dean and Morgan and Helen Chu Professor of Law Martha Minow.
