Professor of Practice David M. Crane speaks to The World at One, a news program broadcast on BBC Radio 4, in the wake of the alleged chemical attack against Syrian citizens in Idlib Province on April 4, 2017, a stronghold for rebels opposed to the Assad regime in Damascus.

Crane explains how accountability for this and other war crimes will work, that the process of accounting for these crimes might take years, that forms of justice mechanisms being considered include a Syrian-based system, and that some of the evidence a prosecutor may one day use comes from work he and his students are doing as part of the Syrian Accountability Project at Syracuse Law.
