Conference: International Criminal Justice at the Crossroads: Reflecting upon the Past, Discussing the Present, and Imagining the Future        

Source:  International Law Reporter

May 8, 2019

On May 17, 2019, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam will host a conference on “International Criminal Justice at the Crossroads: Reflecting upon the Past, Discussing the Present, and Imagining the Future.” The program is here. Here’s the idea:

In July 1998, with loud ovations, diplomats and activists celebrated the adoption of the Rome Statute establishing the International Criminal Court (ICC). Set up in 2002 in the footsteps of various ad hoc international and hybrid criminal tribunals, the ICC was welcomed with great anticipation and high hopes as a global institution that would speak justice to power, hold perpetrators accountable and satisfy victims of the most serious crimes of international concern. Twenty years later, some say that international criminal justice is in crisis. The ICC is facing increasing criticism from States, academia and commentators. Not only is the Court’s case record relatively meagre, but the difficulties relating to issues such as witness interference, political influences, and a lack of state cooperation, make future prospects of the Court challenging. Calls for justice after mass atrocity crimes from victims, activists and others, however, are not likely to dissipate.

This one-day event brings together different generations of practitioners and scholars studying, observing and practicing international criminal justice. During interactive roundtable sessions, the discussants will reflect upon the past, discuss how to address the current challenges, and imagine the future of criminal justice after atrocities.

Conference: The International Criminal Court and the Community of Nations

February 11, 2019

On March 8, 2019, the University of Georgia School of Law will host a conference on “The International Criminal Court and the Community of Nations.” The program is here. Here’s the idea:

Across the globe, resurgent nationalisms place stress on institutions designed to promote human and collective security through international cooperation. Critiques – even, at times, outright denunciations – compel such institutions to re-examine, in a process that poses challenges yet also portends opportunities for renewal. The dynamic surely affects the International Criminal Court. In the last several months alone, states as varied as Burundi, the Philippines, and the United States have levied harsh criticism against this twenty-year-old justice institution, established in recognition that “children, women and men have been victims of unimaginable atrocities” that “threaten the peace, security and well-being of the world.” In the same time frame, the ICC Prosecutor welcomed a multistate referral of alleged crimes in Venezuela and launched a preliminary examination into alleged forced deportation in Myanmar, and the Court as a whole continued complementary efforts to strengthen national and regional prevention and accountability. It did so within legal, geopolitical, and budgetary constraints imposed by a trio of stakeholder communities.

The Dean Rusk International Law Center and the Georgia Journal of International and Comparative Law at the University of Georgia School of Law will host a daylong conference to explore these developments on Friday, March 8, 2019, at the law school’s Athens campus. The conference will feature a video message from International Criminal Court Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda. Experts from academia and the practice will cast a critical eye on “The International Criminal Court and the Community of Nations”; that is, on the place of the ICC vis-à-vis communities of states parties, nonparty states, and nonstate stakeholders, as well as inherited communities. Presentations will be published in the Georgia Journal of International and Comparative Law.
