Former UN Under-Secretary-General Ameerah Haq - Bangladesh.jpg
Wednesday, May 23, 2018 - 18:40

Ameerah Haq from Bangladesh is a passionate advocate of the changes needed to enable women to take part fully in peacekeeping and peace-making. At a special International Women's Day-themed Hague Talks on the role of women in peacekeeping she used her experience as UN Under-Secretary-General for the Department of Field Support between April 2012 and July 2014 to spoke plainly about what the UN’s must do to clean up its act.
Ms Haq’s talk is published here as part of our #MyJustice series. It's been edited for clarity.

Thursday, March 16, 2017 - 14:27

Burundi is now the only African country still making a beeline for the ICC exit door. In reverse order of how they notified the UN Secretary-General of their desire to leave The Hague Court, Gambia and South Africa have returned to the fold. The good news is an opportunity exists for the ICC to smooth things out with South Africa.

‘The World in Crisis’ – How international lawyers see current events

zuma-bashir-icc.jpg
Tuesday, February 7, 2017 - 12:57

It’s a foreboding title - ‘The World in Crisis’ - but relevant. The subjects covered by the International Bar Association’s (IBA) Annual Conference on International Criminal Law were refugees, peace versus justice after conflict, how wars are being funded through trafficking in antiquities and people and money laundering, and immunity from prosecutions.

On Darfur, the ICC prosecutor lays it down

Courtside Justice with Mark Kersten
Thursday, July 2, 2015 - 09:16

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has always had something of a phobia of politics. The Court has a deep-seated fear of appearing to be political. The Rome Statute and only the Rome Statute, its prosecutors insist, informs its decision-making. Politics simply cannot and does not affect or impinge on any decisions the Court makes.

Bashir Bonanza

Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir during the "family photograph" at the AU summit in Johannesburg

We all know the saying “in the wrong place at the wrong time”. For me, that was the case yesterday as I was traveling back from a fascinating PhD Workshop on Justice for Victims of Mass Atrocities at Queen’s University Belfast. A quick glance at my tweet feed at the airport revealed the largest and most intense version of #BashirWatch I had ever seen.

Let us be real. Omar Al Bashir is serving a sovereign country. My legal mind is not focusing on the allegation, however the immunity of serving heads of state is inviolable.
