Immunities, Withdrawals from the International Criminal Court, and African Discontent: Reflections on an Impasse-Max du Plessis (KwaZulu-Natal)

by | Feb 1, 2017

The interpretation by the International Criminal Court of the provisions of its Statute on personal immunities has been much criticised and is of course the subject of political controversy, in particular within the African Union and some of its members. That controversy has recently catalysed the withdrawal from the ICC by certain States, including South Africa.  Is there a way out of this impasse?  What does the controversy portend for the international criminal justice project? Are there any positive lessons to be drawn?

This event is being co-hosted with the Bonavero Institute for Human Rights.
