Présentation de l'éditeur
This edited volume provides a broad perspective on the International Criminal Court’s development over time and explores some of its topical issues, achievements, challenges and critiques. The anthology combines reflections from scholars and practitioners and includes voices from inside and outside the Court, featuring multiple readings of its activities, practice and developments. In line with the volume’s title, the authors portray the establishment and development of the Court (hence the theme ‘past’), critically engage with its successes and challenges (‘present’), and draw conclusions on its achievements and way forward (‘future’). The book examines five key topics: prose-cutorial policy and strategy, jurisdiction and admissibility, victims and witnesses, defence issues, and legitimacy and independence. It includes a number of papers and speeches given at the Nuremberg Forum 2018.
