Supranational Criminal Law Lecture Series

The Kosovo Specialist Chambers: Comparative Legal Perspectives

Friday 22 June 2018
Turfmarkt 99
2511 DP The Hague
Room 3.60

As the prospect of indictments issued by the Special Prosecutor’s Office looms large, the time is ripe to begin scrutinizing the legal framework under which the Kosovo Specialist Chambers (KSC) will be operating.

To this end, this Supranational Criminal Law Series lecture, co-organized by the Institute for European Studies, will focus on various legal matters that will be of critical importance for the KSC. More specifically, the panel discussion will address cooperation with the KSC, the victim participation and reparations regime of the KSC, and defense rights under the KSC framework. It consists of reputable specialists who have both the theoretical knowledge and practical experience with regards the issues at hand. 

Chair: Dr. Medlir Mema, Senior Associate Researcher, Institute for European Studies (IES).

Discussant: Dr. Mathias Holvoet, Senior Associate Researcher, Institute for European Studies (IES).
