Prosecuting War Crimes - The Beginnings of the International Criminal Court: lecture
Feb 7, 2012, 12pm-1:30pm
Is the International Criminal Court a viable possibility for a global criminal justice? Can the Court deliver an active prosecutorial strategy that is both unbiased and effective? Professor Paul Brienza seeks to explore this question by looking at the structure and mandate of the Court in and through its first cases. The focus of the Court's activities has been confined to Africa. Is this an undue bias or a concerted effort to establish a governmental rule of law in Africa? Lastly, can the Court contribute to the elimination of war crimes and genocide? And how does this "global model of justice" reconcile itself to the demands for a local model based on self- determination?
