The Next Big Questions for International Criminal Justice

The Next Big Questions for International Criminal Justice

13 April 2019, The Hague, the Netherlands


A conference presented by the IBA War Crimes Committee

Topics include:
  • Corporate accountability for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide: what gives?
    From Facebook's alleged role in Myanmar's incitement to violence to environmental disasters that might amount to crimes against humanity, can corporations be held accountable for their acts or omissions under international criminal justice?
  • Private actors and investigations: aide or hindrance to international criminal justice?
    The panel will discuss advantages and potential dangers of these actors' operations within the international justice field, in an attempt to draw wherever possible lessons learned and best practices.
  • Novel investigative models to fight impunity: the IIIM, the Iraq Mechanism, and justice for Syria, Iraq and Myanmar
    What is new about these mechanisms and their mandates? To what extent can they constitute precedents for future investigations? What challenges are they encountering?
  • Gender justice: progress and challenges of prosecuting sexual and gender-based crimes
