Kjell Anderson, senior researcher with The Hague Institute for Global Justice, recently travelled to Al Ain in United Arab Emirates to deliver a lecture on the principles and jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court.
The lecture was part of an event on the law and practice of the ICC held on February 19, under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan, UAE minister of education, and jointly organized by the Coalition for the International Criminal Court and the United Arab Emirates University. There is growing interest in the Middle East in the ICC’s work, and the UAE government has announced its intention to join the court. The Hague Institute will provide technical assistance to countries implementing international criminal law within their national justice systems through the Model Code for International Criminal Procedure project.
