The International Criminal Court’s Second Decade: Cooperation

7 Mar 2012 12:00
7 Mar 2012 14:00

There is ongoing concern about the relationship between the Court and African states, as well as the lack of forthcoming cooperation by other member and non-member states with regards to the execution of arrest warrants and penalties, freezing of assets, information sharing, etc. In most of these cases, much work needs to be done by both Court officials as well as government representatives to ensure cooperation becomes a more stable pillar as the Court moves forward.

For this lecture we assembled the following panel:

  • Mr. Gerard Dive, Head of the Unit for International Humanitarian Law at the Belgian Ministry of Justice.
  • Mr. Medlir Mema, Visiting Researcher, Institute for European Studies & PhD-Candidate, George Washington University.
  • Mr. Dan E.O. Ochieng, Legal Advisor at the Kenyan Embassy in The Hague.
  • Ms Elizabeth Evenson, Senior Counsel, International Justice Program, Human Rights Watch.


This lecture is the second session of a series of lectures on the International Criminal Court and is organised by the Institute for European Studies in cooperation with the Global Governance Institute.
