ASIL Summit: Upholding Justice in Ukraine

Share This Post

I want to convey my deep appreciation for friends and family supporting Ukraine, particularly my cousin Sirina Tsai and her husband Perry Bechky, both dedicated lawyers. Their commitment to noble causes and invaluable guidance for me have been inspirational and instrumental as we launched the Ed’s Friends Ukraine 501(c)3 NGO to provide aid to Ukrainians.

Recently, Perry received an invitation to act as rapporteur in the discourse on economic sanctions against russia. He was among 75 legal experts from the American Society of International Law (ASIL), traveling from the U.S. to Lviv, Ukraine, collaborating with 75 Ukrainian counterparts during the Stand Tall for the Rule of Law Summit.
 
This Summit marked the 75th anniversaries of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and the Genocide Convention.
 
The Ukrainian Association of International Law and Lviv’s Ivan Franko National University hosted this joint project with the American Society of International Law.
Discussions encompassed various topics such as:
– Charting the course for global security
– Upholding Ukraine’s legal entitlements
– Returning unlawfully deported children
– Ensuring accountability for the crime of aggression
– Addressing compensation matters
– Focusing on democratic reconstruction efforts
 
I’d like to express gratitude to the American Society of International Law for their forward-thinking. I truly value the impact of international law in securing justice for the people of Ukraine, and applaud the ongoing efforts of ASIL to achieve this aim.
 
Слава Україні 🇺🇦
