Santa Clara University School of Law is proud to host a symposium on the future of international criminal justice. Our keynote speaker is Professor M. Cherif Bassiouni, one of the world’s leading experts on international criminal law. The conference will feature four papers on the following topics: complementarity and the International Criminal Court; terrorism as an international crime; extra-territorial penal jurisdiction; and collective responsibility for international crimes. The symposium will include four panels, one for each of the papers, in which commentators will provide a range of perspectives on the topics addressed. The symposium will conclude with a roundtable discussion in which panelists will explore how the international legal system may better achieve the goals of international criminal law.
The Santa Clara Journal of International Law will publish a "Symposium Edition" of the Journal comprised of articles by the Symposium panelists.
