In collaboration with the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, the University of Johannesburg, South Africa, is hosting a conference on the legacy of the ICTR. The conference will be held on 31 October and 1 November 2013. It is envisaged that leading academics as well as judges, prosecutors, and defense counsel of the ICTR will present their views at the conference.
With the ICTR nearing its end, it becomes important to evaluate the successes and failures of the ICTR for the future of international criminal law. The conference will cover a wide variety of topics including: the Tribunal’s contribution to international law; transitional justice and reconciliation; and the challenges of international criminal prosecutions in Africa.
The organizers are currently calling for papers. A short abstract must reach firstname.lastname@example.org by May 24, 2013.
