Professor Harry POST will give a farewell speech on the International Criminal Court (ICC).
In perspective: the International Criminal Court and the state of International Criminal Law
After 10 years teaching in Lille, Professor Harry POST will give a farewell speech on the International Criminal Court (ICC) which is under constant attack
(too costly, only African cases, cases that go wrong, etc.). Although this is certainly somewhat overdone -and perhaps we expect too much-, there is some
reason for concern. Surprisingly International Criminal Law itself seems healthier than ever. It will be argued that this is also a result of the ICC.
