The first session of the IRxForum took place on Wednesday 27th February 2019, in the Al-Farabi Hall of W3. The panel-based forum is intended to act as a platform for the University of Sharjah's International Relations students, and students from other majors interested in International Relations, to discuss socially relevant and intellectually challenging ideas. The topic of the first session was 'Should International Law Focus on Retributive Justice?', which prompted a number of discussion points, including the relevance of the International Criminal Court, cultural relativism and the value of alternative modes of justice, including restorative justice.
