Thursday 12 Oct 2017 in the Sir Joseph Hotung Auditorium, Hands Building, at Mansfield College

Reflections on Peace & Justice in the 21st Century

A perspective from the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court

How does the pursuit of international criminal justice contribute towards the ends of peace? Should justice be sequenced to cater for peace processes or can a workable harmony be found to advance both these virtues?   This lecture will aim to answer these important questions, more specifically within the Rome Statute legal framework.
