CILPA is in the process of planning a number of events for 2024, check back on a regular basis for more details:

Universal Criminal Jurisdiction Conference

Building on the success of the Universal Criminal Jurisdiction: A Key Tool in the Fight for Atrocity Crimes in Ukraine and Beyond conference co-organised by CILPA and the IBA – and the hosted by Debevoise & Plimpton LLP – in New York in October 2022, a second session in collaboration with the CEELI Institute in Prague, from 7-8 October 2024, will to a large extent focus on universal jurisdiction as it relates to the ongoing conflict in the Ukraine, on the first day. CILPA proposes that the collaborators host a second half day session to discuss universal jurisdiction more broadly, especially as it relates to the Global North and Global South divide and their differing experiences and approaches to universal jurisdiction.

Climate Change Symposium

Building on the success of the all-day high-level hybrid symposium on African Perspectives on International Climate Change Law co-organised by the Center for International Law & Policy in Africa (CILPA), the Human Rights Program at Harvard Law School, and the Dullah Omar Institute at the University of the Western Cape  at Harvard Law School on 29 March 2024, CILPA is in the process of organising a second symposium on the topic on the African continent, to further address the distinctive challenges African States and societies face in the global effort to address climate change including in relation to equitable access to financial resources, technology transfer, infrastructure for adaptation, mitigation and research, and representation and influence in decision-making processes. The date is to be confirmed. If you are interested in collaborating with us on this symposium please reach out to Prof. Charles Jalloh at [email protected].

ICC Colloquium

On 29 March 2021, CILPA launched the International Criminal Court Colloquium – a series dedicated specifically to advancing the scholarly debate on the work of the world’s only permanent international penal tribunal with responsibility to prosecute genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and the crime of aggression. The series, which is part of our Africa-ICC Research Project, and co-sponsored by the American Society of International Law and the International Nuremberg Principles Academy, seeks to highlight issues of particular relevance to the future success of the ICC, especially from an African perspective. Three ICC Colloquium sessions were hosted in 2021, and two in 2022. We hope to relaunch the Colloquium this year.
