Grotius Centre to host ICTY Legacy Lecture Series
After 24 years of operations, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) will close its doors at the end of this year. To mark this significant moment in the history of international criminal law, the ICTY and the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies of Leiden Law School are co-organising a series of four lectures telling the story of the different organs of the Tribunal and the Defence. Each lecture will be dedicated to one particular section of the Tribunal, to hear about the unique experiences of ICTY staff and those working in Defence, all of whom have played a crucial role in the Tribunal’s success.
This is an exciting opportunity for academics, students and practitioners in this field to meet and engage with some of the people “behind the scenes” at the Tribunal. The discussions will begin with opening remarks by a high-level speaker from the relevant section – ICTY President Judge Carmel Agius, Deputy Registrar Kate Mackintosh, Deputy Prosecutor Michelle Jarvis, and a representative from the Tribunal’s Association of Defence Counsel (ADC-ICT) – followed by a moderated panel of four ICTY staff members or Defence Counsel.
The lectures are part of the ICTY Legacy Dialogues series of legacy and closing events, and will take place at Leiden University’s Hague Campus (Wijnhaven, Room 2.02, Turfmarkt 99) on the following dates:
- 5 October 2017, 17:00 - 19:00: “The Story of the ICTY Registry”
- 19 October 2017, 17:00 - 19:00: “The Story of Defence Counsel practicing before the ICTY”
- 2 November 2017, 17:00 - 19:00: “The Story of the ICTY Office of the Prosecutor”
- 16 November 2017, 17:00 - 19:00: “The Story of ICTY Chambers”
