Dr Miles Jackson has been awarded, ex aequo, the Antonio Cassese Prize for International Criminal Law (2015-2016). The Cassese Prize, given biennially, is awarded to the author of the most original and innovative paper(s) published in the Journal of International Criminal Justice in the preceding two years. The Prize comes with a grant of €7,500 to support a research project over the next two years and will be awarded at a ceremony in Germany in the autumn.
The two articles concerned, respectively, the potential international criminal responsibility of scientists participating in Apartheid South Africa's anti-fertility research, and the relationship between regional criminal tribunals and the admissibility provisions of the International Criminal Court. Miles' research project over the next two years will address the accommodation of political decision-making within international criminal practice.
