“Understanding the Dynamics of the Africa–International Criminal Court Relationship” – Invitation to a Dundee Africa Research Network (DARN) Event on Wednesday 15 November 2017


Dear members and friends,

We are pleased to invite staff and students to a DARN Talk which will focus on Understanding the Dynamics of the Africa-International Criminal Court Relationship. The guest speaker is Kurt Mills— Professor of International Relations and Human Rights at the University of Dundee.

Abstract:

Although African countries were some of the strongest supporters of the creation of the International Criminal Court, the relationship between Africa and the ICC has become increasingly fractious, resulting in the withdrawal from the Court of one African country, and threats from others to withdraw. What are the dynamics of this relationship? This talk will examine the strategic and tactical forms of resistance used by African states against the ICC.

Date:     Wednesday, 15th November, 2017
Venue:  Room 2G12, Dalhousie Building, University of Dundee
Time:     4:30 - 6.00pm
