Africa's courts must deliver justice for international crimes


To end impunity for international crimes, Africa must strengthen national criminal justice systems and regional courts – but how can this be achieved?

This seminar will explore the successes and challenges of current international justice responses in Africa.

Speakers will discuss: recent developments at national and regional levels that respond to international crimes; what must be done to ensure that the future African Court of Justice and Human Rights can reduce impunity; and how African governments can tackle international crimes in their national courts in a holistic way.
