The Royal African Society

Tuesday 18th June 2019

18:00 – 21:00, Khalili Lecture Theatre, Main Building, SOAS, Thornhaugh Street, Russell Square, London, WC1H 0XG

After 17 years in operation, The International Criminal Court (ICC) has come under repeated criticism, including accusations of bias against African states and failure to prosecute against genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

This event will look at on-going human rights issues across Africa with a particular focus on Ethiopia, Rwanda, Kenya, South Africa and Sudan. The discussion will highlight potential ways to reform the ICC and implement best-practice regarding integration with domestic judiciaries and institutions in order to protect fundamental human rights on the African continent.

Delivered by the Royal African Society in partnership with The Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy (CISD), The Centre on Conflict, Rights and Justice (CCRJ) and The University of London's Centre of African Studies.
