Description

GHRN Panel Discussion

Africa and the International Criminal Court

Yudowitz Seminar Room, Wolfson Medical School, University of Glasgow
Wednesday 10th May, 4.30 - 6.00pm

Although African countries helped to drive the development of the International Criminal Court, the relationship has become much more conflicted over the last several years. There are concerns that Africa has been unfairly targeted by the ICC, that the insertion of the ICC into ongoing conflicts makes solving conflicts more difficult, and that generally the ICC undermines Africa’s ability to craft solutions which work best for the continent. At the same time, there are concerns that recent developments represent a move away from a commitment to anti-impunity for crimes against humanity and other atrocities. The participants in this panel discussion will discuss these dynamics, including the three recent African withdrawals from the ICC ( and the reversals of two of these withdrawals). The participants include:

Andrea Birdsall (Edinburgh)
Adam Bower (St. Andrews)
Kurt Mills (Glasgow)
Mateja Peter (St. Andrews)
