The Wayamo Foundation and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung’s Rule of Law Program for anglophone Sub-Saharan Africa have launched an online resource platform on the adjudication of international crimes in Africa called “International Justice in Motion: Perspectives from the Courtroom and Beyond”. As part of this project, experts and judges from Africa were interviewed on debates relating to current and past efforts in the prosecution and adjudication of international crimes in the region.
International Justice in Motion – Perspectives from Kenya and Beyond
Betty Murungi, transitional justice expert and Advocate of the High Court of Kenya, discusses accountability for cases involving gender-based violence on the African continent, with specific attention to the impact of the recent trial of those responsible for sexual violence crimes committed during the post-election violence in Kenya. Other topic areas covered are accountability mechanisms in Sierra Leone and South Sudan, judicial independence, the rule of law, and the future of the adjudication of international crimes cases on the African continent.
