Contemporary Issues in International Criminal Prosecutions
Wednesday, November 30, 2011, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Recent events, such as the indictments against the late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi by the International Criminal Court and former Bosnian Serb military leader Ratko Mladic by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, have catapulted international criminal prosecutions into the headlines. While strides have been made in holding high-ranking officials criminally responsible for their actions, the international criminal justice system still faces challenges. The panelists will discuss issues such as rights of the defense, the principle of complementarity and judicial candidacy.
