Dr Jones participates in international workshop at Edge Hill University

On 13th June, Dr Annika Jones participated in an international workshop on “The Cross-Fertilization Rhetoric in Question: Use and Abuse of the European Court’s Jurisprudence by International Criminal Tribunals” at Edge Hill University (Omskirk, UK).

The event focused on the legal phenomenon of cross-fertilization between international criminal law and human rights principles developed by specialized supranational bodies. The goal was to critically assess the manner in which widely-recognized standards of human rights have been used (or misused) by international criminal tribunals.

During the workshop, Annika presented a paper entitled “Insights into an Emerging Relationship: Use of Human Rights Case Law in the International Criminal Court’s Lubanga Case”.

Conclusions drawn from the workshop were presented in a public conference on Saturday 14th June. The keynote speech was given by Judge Cuno Tarfusser, Vice-President of the International Criminal Court. 

Date: 23 June 2014
