On 15 April 2024, some of the world’s leading international lawyers and cross-party UK parliamentarians sent a public letter to British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and Foreign Secretary David Cameron, urging them to support the Genocide Determination Bill that is currently under discussion in the House of Lords. 

The Genocide Determination Bill is a private members’ bill introduced in the House of Lords by our patron Lord Alton of Liverpool. The bill was first introduced in 2015. The Genocide Amendment to the Trade Bill in 2020/21 was based on the previous drafts of the Genocide Determination Bill.
