War Crimes Committee Conference - Session 5: Legal pluralism and the International Criminal Court

Traditionally States and their domestic laws were considered the starting point in relation to adjudicating crimes and maintaining legal order. In today’s globalized world we have seen the development of the fields of international human rights law and international criminal law, emerging as international legal regimes on their own. Those international legal regimes have a variety of sources, stemming from different legal traditions and different world views. This is the case especially with international criminal law, where different rules apply simultaneously, and have the potential to clash and create challenges during the adjudication process. Therefore, there is a need to address the plurality of rules that might be applicable with relation to a single international criminal case, as well as their relationship and hierarchy. Our distinguished speakers will address the followings among other issues: The ICC’s Procedural Regime: the 1998 Model at its 24 Year Road Test. Is Islamic law, as some have argued, so radically different and unsupportive of international criminal justice? or can it contribute to the effective implementation of international criminal justice in the modern world? What are the potential tensions between Islamic notions of penal law and those international criminal rules adjudicated by the ICC? Is there a Place for Culture in International Criminal Justice?
