CANCELED - Ensuring their Legitimacy: What future for International Criminal Courts and Tribunals?

PluriCourts seminar with postdoctoral research fellow Joanna Nicholson.

This seminar is CANCELED.

Ensuring their legitimacy is a constant challenge for international criminal courts and tribunals (ICTs). Ever since the first ICT opened its doors, these institutions have attracted controversy and their legitimacy has been questioned. In her research, Nicholson uses the concept of legitimacy as a prism through which to assess the functioning of these institutions, and suggests lessons that should be learned as the field of international criminal law moves into a more uncertain future.


PluriCourt Seminars are a forum for pluridisciplinary discussion of core issues relating to international courts and tribunals. PluriCourts scholars or invited speakers present new and ongoing research or comment on current questions. The seminars are open to everyone.
