Children and International Criminal Justice Conference featuring ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda

Tuesday, October 28, 2014 - 9:15am to 12:20pm
School of Law

This conference will examine issues related to children and international criminal justice. Experts will be drawn from academia and the practice; from international organizations like UNICEF and the Office of the Special Representative to the U.N. Secretary-General for Children & Armed Conflict; and from nongovernmental organizations like Human Rights Watch, International Center for Transitional Justice, International Committee of Red Cross, No Peace Without Justice, Protect Education in Insecurity & Conflict, Save the Children, and The Carter Center. They will consider legal doctrines, field research, and policy options. These discussions will assist the ICC Prosecutor’s Special Adviser on Children in and affected by Armed Conflict to advise the Office of the Prosecutor in the process of its development of a Policy Paper on Children.

The morning will feature a public, plenary session, with presentations by an expert panel and a keynote address by the ICC Prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda. Then will follow an afternoon of closed workshop sessions, with discussion led by experts.
