David Schwendiman Reflects on his Time at the Kosovo Specialist Prosecutor’s Office and the Challenges Ahead

Thursday 22 March 2018
Schouwburgstraat 2
2511 VA The Hague

The out-going Specialist Prosecutor of the recently established Specialist Prosecutor’s Office, which is tasked with investigating and prosecuting crimes committed in 1998, 1999 and 2000 in Kosovo, looks back on the challenges faced, the challenges met, and the challenges to come for the Specialist Prosecutor’s Office. 

He will address the historical and political origins of the Office as context for a discussion of the unique place the Office holds in the evolution and development of means for enforcing international criminal norms.  He will also reflect on the role of the Specialist Prosecutor and the challenges the person who holds the office must overcome to be effective.

SCL Lectures are public and free of charge, but places are limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis. Registration via grotiuscentre@law.leidenuniv.nl is therefore mandatory.

The views and opinions expressed in or during the Supranational Criminal Law Lectures are not necessarily those of the host and/or participating organisations, namely the T.M.C. Asser Instituut, the Coalition for the International Criminal Court (CICC) and the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies of Leiden University.
