PluriCourts invites contributions for its upcoming conference in International Criminal Law in Oslo, 30-31 August 2018.
The deadline for submission is 19 March 2018.
On 17 and 18 May 2018, the second conference in the Identity on the International Bench Series is taking place in The Hague, organized by the PluriCourts Centre of Excellence, Oslo University.
Researcher Carola Lingaas offers her approach to the definition of race in international criminal law.
Researcher at PluriCourts, Ester Strømmen, discussed female foreign fighters on Norwegian National TV - NRK - Dagsrevyen.
This conference will comprehensively and critically evaluate the rights of defendants and victims before ICTs. It will bring together a mix of practitioners from the field of international criminal justice and scholars to exchange perspectives and to debate and discuss the issues.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Joanna Nicholson, provides insights of her new book Fighting and Victimhood in International Criminal Law (Routledge, 2018).
In April more than 30 people were killed by a chemical weapon attack in Syria. Despite clear evidence that serious international crimes have been committed, and despite numerous calls to hold those responsible to account, the international criminal justice system seems, at present at least, to be impotent.
Female foreign fighters are framed as delusional, emotionally unstable, and naïve jihadi brides in search of a husband. This narrative can be dangerous, explains Ester Strømmen at PluriCourts.
On the 21st of September, PluriCourts, with generous funding from the Norwegian Research Council and Lovsamlingsfondet, brought together young researchers from around the world for the first postgraduate colloquium on the frontiers of international environmental law. Topics from the creation of a court for the environment, to prosecuting the crime of ecocide at the ICC, to the legal consequences of space debris were discussed.
