International Criminal Justice in Africa
International Criminal Justice
The Coalition co-hosted a meeting of a group of African experts on international criminal justice met in Nairobi on 6 June 2009 to examine the international criminal justice in Africa.
A submission by the International Refugee Rights Initiative and the Coalition was submitted to African States Parties to the Rome Statute establishing the International Criminal Court ahead of their meeting to reflect on the Court from 8 to 9 June 2009.
The Coalition together with several organisations including the East Africa Law Society, the Darfur Consortium, Open Society Justice Initiative and the Southern Africa Litigation Centre prepared a submission on the implications of the extension of jurisdiction of the African Court to include international crimes for consideration at the January 2010 AU Summit.
