Symposium on the International Criminal Court
Feb 2007
The final two of a series of workshops organized by the ICC Project Office of Beijing Normal University were held in Beijing (February 3-4) and Harbin (February 6th) respectively. Throughout 2005 and 2006, workshops had already been organized in Hainan, Shanghai and Wuhan. With participation from a wide range of actors including national and international experts and government authorities, the meeting offered a space to discuss issues related to the ICC including the powers of the prosecutor, trigger mechanisms, questions concerning the possibility of 'politically-motivated cases', as well as complementarity. Explanations on the Court's mandate and jurisdiction were also brought up.
