Looking forward to “Moving Forward: The Future of the ICC in Light of Recent Developments,” the upcoming Emory Law conference in which I’ve been invited to take part.
The 4th annual symposium of the Emory International Law Review, “Moving Forward” will take place on Tuesday, February 26, at the Atlanta law school. A highlight will be Stephen J. Rapp, Ambassador-at-Large for War Crimes Issues, Office of Global Justice, U.S. Department of State: he’ll deliver the David J. Bederman Lecture, named after the Emory international law professor who died in 2011. An Emory Law alum, Hague-based attorney Julian Nicholls, will open the day, and in the afternoon our Vanderbilt Law colleague Michael Newton will discuss “The International Criminal Court: A Policy Prognosis for U.S. Cooperation.” Also scheduled are the following panels, to be moderated by Emory Law’s Laurie Blank and Johan van der Vyver:
- “Retributive Justice vs. Restorative Justice: Pursuing Justice and Peace Concurrently,” featuring Kevin Cieply (John Marshall Law-Atlanta), Itonde Kakoma (Carter Center-Atlanta), and Zachary Kaufman (Yale Law).
- “Challenging Impunity: A Discussion of the Thomas Lubanga Trial,” featuring Charles Jalloh (Pittsburgh Law), Noah Weisbord (Florida International Law), and yours truly, Diane Marie Amann (Georgia Law).
- “Constructive Complementarity: A Domestic Solution to International Crimes,” featuring Nirej Sekhon (Georgia State Law), Tricia “C.K.” Hoffler (Edmond & Lindsay, Atlanta law firm), and John Washburn (American Non-Governmental Organizations Coalition for the International Criminal Court).
