  • How does transnational criminal law link to core international crimes?
  • How to design reparations schemes for victims?
  • What is the role of NGOs in international crime investigations?
  • Can there be immunity for Heads of State under international criminal law?

These were some of the questions addressed between 22-24 March 2016 when an independent group of senior African experts on international criminal law and human rights held a three-day symposium in Cape Town, South Africa on African Justice Mechanisms and their interplay with the International Criminal Court.

This short documentary produced by the Wayamo Foundation introduces the Africa Group for Justice and Accountability (AGJA) and highlights the debates and discussions on justice for the most serious crimes in Africa, and beyond.

The symposium, which was organised by AGJA and the Wayamo Foundation and hosted by the University of Cape Town, analysed the crucial aspects of national, regional and international justice, as well as the role of its main players.

The symposium was attended by over one 150 experts on international criminal justice, including leading human rights activists, academics and practitioners in the field of international law.
