ICC Conference at Nottingham

by Kevin Jon Heller

My friend Olympia Bekou at the University of Nottingham has asked me to post the following conference announcement:

The International Criminal Court and the State
9th November 2007

The Human Rights Law Centre and Methods and Data Institute at the
University of Nottingham announce a multi-disciplinary conference
entitled ‘The International Criminal Court and the State’.

As one of the four partners to the International Criminal Court Legal
Tools Project, the Human Rights Law Centre is developing a database of
national implementing legislation. The conference will set in context
our work with the Court, focusing on issues of implementation and the
impact of new technologies in the Legal Tools Project on international
criminal justice.

A range of panel sessions will address these issues:

Session One: The ICC in Practice: Challenges and Prospects

Session Two: Justice on the Ground: The ICC, the State and the
use of new technologies

Session Three: Future Focus: The ICC Legal Tools Project

Members of the Legal Tools Project will be speaking at the conference,
including Morten Bergsmo (Senior Researcher, PRIO), Christian Ranheim
(Director of ICC Legal Tools Programme of Norwegian Centre for Human
Rights), Anabela Alves (Senior Policy Officer) and Enrique Carnero Rojo,
(ICC Associate Legal Officer, Office of the Prosecutor) are among the
confirmed speakers.

The conference takes place on Friday 9th November 2007 in the Senate
Chamber of the Trent Building, University of Nottingham.

Registration information, programme and speaker updates, news,
directions and further details can be found at the Conference’s
