2023 E-Learning Program on International Criminal Evidence
|Organizer||The Siracusa International Institute for Criminal Justice and Human Rights|
This course will examine how international courts prove the most serious international crimes. It aims to provide a thorough analysis of law and procedure relating to evidence and proof in international criminal trials, from Nuremberg through to the ad hoc international criminal tribunals, to international and hybrid tribunals today. The course will explore key concepts such as the burden and standard of proof; witness protection; the evaluation of evidence, and the standard of review on appeal. It will examine new developments in the law and practice of the International Criminal Court, such as the turn towards a ‘submission model’ for the admission of evidence and recent jurisprudence on witness proofing. A closing roundtable will give students the opportunity to consider how new technologies are changing the landscape of fact-finding in international criminal justice.
The course targets:
- Recent graduates in Law, Political Science, International Relations, or related fields
- Young professionals and practitioners within the international legal/political field
but it is open to all those who might be interested to expand their knowledge in the topic targeted.
The course will be broadcast live on Zoom. The course material and other relevant resources will be available on an online platform. During the course and for one week after the broadcast, participants will have access to video recordings of all daily sessions.
Details on the program, fees and registration can be found on the course website.
