UNCCA Annual May Seminar – Presentation Videos

UNCCA is proud to share a series of recordings of presentations from its latest Annual May Seminar, which took place on May 24 at the University of Canberra this year.

These recordings are now being made available to the public in order to promote awareness on key topics relevant to the international law landscape. UNCCA further hopes these videos will prove beneficial in providing those that were unable to attend the Seminar with insight into the processes and quality of the annual event. We hope to see you at next year’s Annual May Seminar.
