The Hague Institute conducted a workshop which is aimed at building judicial capacity for the implementation of international criminal law, focusing on capacity building and strengthening procedural law as applied in national jurisdictions in investigating, prosecuting and adjudicating international crime, together with our partners HiiL and ACIL.
The goal of the workshop was achieved through matching the knowledge and expertise gained from the drafting exercise with the needs of specific countries. Thus, we aim to connect what we have learned to practice, to the particular context in each country. For this workshop, the project team and key actors (e.g. legislators, policy makers, judiciary) of Tunisia and Serbia worked together to develop a mechanism to strengthen national procedural law in investigating, prosecuting and adjudicating international crimes. This was followed by training and ongoing technical support to ensure that capacity is kept to a high level. The workshop took place at the HiiL Justice Innovation Lab, at Bezuidenhoutseweg 16A, The Hague.
