Where next for the International Criminal Court?
Wed 26 April 2017, 18:30 – 20:30 BST
Where next for the ICC?
Wayne Jordash QC (Doughty Street Chambers) and Carla Ferstman (REDRESS)
The next event in the Haldane Society’s Human Rights Lectures series looks at the future of the International Criminal Court. Despite it’s broad remit to consider international crimes and human rights violations the ICC is mired in criticisms of Western Imperialism and jurisdictional limitations caused by ‘complementarity.’ After 15 years, is the ICC still in crisis or is it finally coming into it’s own?
Two excellent speakers will explore the legal and political potential of the ICC. Wayne Jordash QC is a barrister at Doughty Street Chambers and director of Global Rights Compliance. He has more than 20 years' experience in international human rights and humanitarian law. He has appeared in most international tribunals including the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court (ICC).
Carla Ferstman if the Director of REDRESS, a human rights organisation that helps victims of torture to obtain justice and reparation and access the ICC. She is both a lawyer and academic and is a noted commentator on the ICC and victim’s rights.
The event is free and booking is not required.
