The Nuremberg Forum 2018 will pay tribute to the 20th anniversary of the Rome Statute and will critically evaluate the past 20 years while also looking at the next 20 years in terms of practice and the ever-changing landscape of the International Criminal Court (ICC). By analysing the interplay between law, justice and politics, the Nuremberg Forum 2018 aims to examine key aspects and developments at the ICC. By providing this forum for critical reflections and discussions, the Nuremberg Academy aims to put the fundamental tenents of the Nuremberg Principles at the core of the discussions and assess the advancement and illuminate the development of international criminal law.

Several leading women are among those speaking, including Dr. Navi Pillay (opening remarks) and Fatou Bensouda (Keynote); and on panels: Professor Margaret M. deGuzman (on case selection); Judge Ekaterina Trendafilova and Michelle Jarvis (on the length of proceedings); Amanda Ghahremani, Fiona McKay and Michaela Lissowsky (on victims’ participation and reparations); Almudena Bernabeu and Brenda Hollis (on the exercise of jurisdiction and complementarity within the Rome Statute); Professor Erika de Wet (on State engagement and disengagement); Professor Kamari Clarke and Barbara Lochbihler (on the ICC within the next 20 years); with closing remarks shared by Dr. Viviane Dittrich.
