International criminal justice mechanisms are experiencing a period of both significant challenge and potential opportunity. Faced with this uncertainty, many see the experiment of international criminal accountability to be at a pivotal moment. Can past successes from previous international tribunals offer input on how to address the current challenges? Or has the global political climate changed so fundamentally that new paths need to be forged? A panel of distinguished experts will discuss these issues and address the challenges of providing accountability for atrocities in the 21st century. This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Victims of Torture and the ABA’s Center for Human Rights and Criminal Justice Section.
- David M. Crane, former Chief Prosecutor of the Special Court for Sierra Leone
- Diane Orentlicher, American University Washington College of Law (Moderator)
- Tom Sheehy, KRL International, former staff director, U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs
- Jane Stromseth, Georgetown University Law Center, former Deputy to the Ambassador-at-Large, Office of Global Criminal Justice, U.S. Department of State
This session is part of the Society’s “Atrocity Prevention: The Role of International Law and Justice” signature topic.
Signed copies of Dr. Crane’s new book, Every Living Thing, will be available onsite.
