South Africa and international criminal justice – the way forward
29. August 2018 @ 09:00 - 17:00
At a crucial point in time, when South Africa’s longstanding commitment to the International Criminal Court (ICC) hangs in the balance, and many countries across Africa and other parts of the world are looking on with real interest at the direction it will take, the Africa Group for Justice and Accountability (AGJA) and the Wayamo Foundation held a one-day public symposium in Cape Town on the issue. The event was made possible thanks to the combined generosity of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, the German Federal Foreign Office, the European Union, and the Government of Canada.
Not only did the symposium prove highly successful in bringing together a varied and prestigious group of international and local experts on international criminal justice, non-governmental organisations, academics, practitioners and members of civil society, but it also managed to address topics of pressing concern and importance, ranging from “International Criminal Justice – The Road Ahead”, “South Africa and the ICC – Where Now” and “The UNSC-ICC Relationship and Head of State Immunity” to “Thinking Outside the ICC Box: Domestic and Hybrid Justice for core international crimes”.
