The International Criminal Court (ICC) is under attack in many quarters. Some critics claim that it has focused too much on African states; others charge that its jurisprudence has failed to respond to the occurrence of serious crimes.

Presented by Patricia Viseur Sellers, Special Advisor for Gender, Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, this lecture will outline the legal contribution of some recent controversial cases decided by the Court, in particular the Ntaganda, Bemba and Al-Bashir cases.

This lecture is co-hosted with the Asia Pacific Centre for Military Law.
