Nottingham International Criminal Justice Conference: The field of international criminal justice is diverse and constantly evolving. International criminal justice continues to be viewed as an important aspect of any international or domestic response to mass violence and conflict. The gaps in, and limits to, substantive criminal law and criminal justice processes remain key concerns. And yet, despite this, the norms of international justice – and the expectation of, and calls for, accountability – are stronger than ever. Situations of mass violence frequently evoke recourse to at least the language, if not also the institutions, of international criminal justice. For better or worse, mass violence is increasingly understood through the conceptual framework of international crimes. At the same time, scholarship in the field of international criminal justice is increasing, with researchers employing novel and interdisciplinary approaches to answer the questions raised by international criminal law.

Against this backdrop, opportunities to take stock of current issues and recent developments in the field are more important than ever. With this in mind, the University of Nottingham School of Law, in partnership with the International Criminal Justice Unit of the Human Rights Law Centre, will be hosting the Nottingham International Criminal Justice Conference on 8–9 July 2024. This conference will bring together people working across the diverse field of international criminal justice, fostering connections between academics, practitioners and policymakers as we hear about recent developments in research and practice, and explore, discuss and debate current issues in the field. For information about the conference and to register, click here.
