Whose interests were served in Addis Ababa? Reviewing the AU's decision on its relationship with the ICC
Date: 18 October 2013
Time: 11h00 - 13h00
Venue: Conference Room, ISS Pretoria

On 12 October African heads of state gathered to discuss the International Criminal Court (ICC) and in particular, the ICC’s cases against the president and deputy president of Kenya. The ISS convened a seminar on 10 October to debate the summit’s likely outcome and its implications for international criminal justice in Africa. The good news is that African states parties won’t be withdrawing from the ICC’s Rome Statute. The bad news is that the outcome affords impunity for grave crimes to sitting heads of state, and is likely to entrench perceptions that the ICC favours Western rather than global interests.

This seminar will discuss the AU’s decisions and their legal and political implications.

Chair: Paul-Simon Handy, Head, Conflict Prevention and Risk Analysis Division, ISS Pretoria

Speaker: Sivu Maqungo, Senior Research Consultant, Transnational Threats and International Crime Division, ISS Pretoria
