Cooperation and networking among legal experts is key to enhancing the investigation and prosecution of international crimes in Africa. Challenges facing mutual legal assistance, extradition, extraterritorial prosecutions and access to evidence can be addressed through sharing and identifying best practices. 

This conference, hosted by the ISS and REDRESS, aims to start the process of establishing a network of legal practitioners. Participants include experienced prosecutors, representatives from the African Union, regional and international practitioners networks (such as Interpol, Africa Prosecutors Association, the EU Genocide Network), as well as civil society.
