Nuremberg Forum 2022 “The International Criminal Court 2002–2022: A Court in Practice”
The International Nuremberg Principles Academy is organizing its annual high-level international conference Nuremberg Forum from 13 to 15 October 2022. The Nuremberg Forum 2022 will be held as a hybrid event. The speakers and a limited number of participants will gather at Courtroom 600 of the Nuremberg Palace of Justice. An interactive online platform will allow broad attendance including interactive engagement and discussion. Prior registration is required.
The conference will examine the achievements of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in its first two decades. High-level experts will analyze its work and will reflect on its set-up and achievements in light of the Nuremberg Principles and the Nuremberg legacy. Six panels which will identify the ICC’s strengths and weaknesses in its fight against impunity:
- Panel I: The ICC’s Major Achievements
- Panel II: Goal Setting: How Deterrent is the ICC in Reality?
- Panel III: Complementarity: Universal Aspirations Versus Tangible Results
- Panel IV: Justice is Interconnected and Does not End with a Sentencing: Reflecting on the Experiences of Victims, Witnesses and the Accused Before the ICC
- Panel V: Whose Outreach and to Whom?
The leading questions at the heart of this conference are: “What have been the achievements of the ICC, especially in terms of its own goal setting and wider universal aspirations and what challenges does it still face?” and “How did the ICC strengthen, over the years, its contribution to the international legal order, and how can its contributions be improved?”
The Nuremberg Forum will bring together leading and distinguished practitioners, academics and other scholars from across the international criminal justice field and related domains. The keynote addresses will be delivered by H. E. Christian Wenaweser (Ambassador of the Permanent Mission of the Principality of Liechtenstein to the United Nations), Luis Moreno-Ocampo (former Prosecutor of the ICC), Fatou Bensouda (High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, The Gambia and former Prosecutor of the ICC) and Brigid Inder OBE (Former Executive Director of Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice).
