Through the Lens of Nuremberg: The International Criminal Court at its Tenth Anniversary

The International Criminal Court (ICC) was established to help end impunity for the perpetrators of the most serious crimes of international concern, namely genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. Upon the ratification of 30 countries at the earliest in 2017, the ICC will also have jurisdiction over the crime of aggression.

The following documentary was produced in 2013, highlighting the conference “Through the Lens of Nuremberg: The International Criminal Court at its Tenth Anniversary” held in Nuremberg to mark the tenth anniversary of the entry into force of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. The conference was held on 4-5 October 2012 and was organised by the new international criminal justice institution in Nuremberg (currently in its founding stage) in cooperation with the Wayamo Foundation and with the financial support of the German Federal Foreign Office.
