Seminar Series

Locating criminal accountability in international and transnational law

TLI Banner

Time and Venue: Monday 5pm -7pm, Moot Court Room SW 1.18 (unless otherwise specified)

Convened by: Dr Nicola Palmer, Dr Liliane Mouan and Robyn Leslie

This semester the Transnational Law Seminar Series will explore the shifts in the locus of criminal accountability for international and transnational crimes. In international criminal law, there are notable moves towards domestic and regional criminal courts and a recent re-introduction of the potential for hybrid criminal courts in Syria, the Central African Republic and South Sudan. At the same time, the debates around who should have to account for their actions are broadening with states, corporations and shareholders included in a frame that has historically focused on senior military, political and religious leaders. This seminar series explores the changes that are happening in the law and interrogates the specific actors involved in these shifts in the location of criminal accountability. It includes lawyers, anthropologists, political scientists and journalists in a wide-ranging exchange on the actors, norms and processes at play.
