Africa and the International Criminal Court — Building Bridges and Reaching Compromise
Lecture by Mark Kersten

17 May 2018, 6pm
Room A 300
WZB Berlin Social Science Center, Reichpietschufer 50, 10785 Berlin

Based on the newly released research and policy paper, this lecture will delve into these questions, elaborating the core motivations of African critiques of the Court, offering an detailed view into the current issues at the heart of the Africa-ICC relationship, as well as outlining concrete measures that can be taken to improve it. African states helped build the ICC; their engagement with the institution will determine what kind of Court — and indeed what kind of system of global justice — the world and its people can expect.
