The Ferenc Mádl Institute of Comparative Law and the Central European Academy are organising an international scientific conference dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the entry into force of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, focusing on the current challenges of international criminal justice from the ICC’s point of view.
Although there is no doubt that the adoption of the Rome Statute was a considerable success towards putting an end to impunity of perpetrators committing the most serious crimes of concern to the international community, there is still a long way to go for the Court to fulfil its mandate. Therefore, the conference provides room for discussion on the permanent problems of the ICC related, inter alia, to jurisdiction, complementarity, its relationship with the United Nations Security Council, immunity, cooperation with States with special regard to Africa and selective justice, while it is also devoted to the latest topical issues before the Court. All in all, the conference is a stock-taking of the ICC’s achievements reached so far and of proposals of possible solutions to overcome its hurdles.
Participation in the conference is by prior invitation. The organizers reserve the right to deny entry to the event in case of improper registration.
