Overview

Following the collapse of the Kenyatta case, Libya’s refusal to surrender Saif Gaddafi, and Sudan’s obstruction of investigations in Darfur, this meeting will discuss the effect of non-cooperation by states on the International Criminal Court’s proceedings and the difficulties in conducting investigations in unsafe or conflict areas. The meeting will also consider other challenges, such as the possibility of prosecuting Islamic State (IS) and its supporters before the Court. 

This event is held in association with Doughty Street Chambers and is accredited with 1.5 CPD points.
