Conference: Africans and Hague Justice: Realities and Perceptions of the International Criminal Court in Africa

With this multi-disciplinary conference, the organizers aim to highlight African perspectives on the International Criminal Court and the jurisdiction with which it operates. The conference theme closely connects to the current African cases at the International Criminal Court and the vocal and mixed reactions from the African continent towards them. We are proud to host internationally renowned scholars, such as Kamari Clarke (Yale University), Charles Jalloh (Florida Int. University), Phakiso Mochochoko (ICC) and Makau Mutua (Suny Buffalo Law school), featuring as key-note speakers at the conference.
