Prosecuting Serious International Crimes: Exploring the Intersections between International Justice and Domestic Rule of Law Efforts


This academic year marks the 20th anniversary of the War Crimes Research Office, founded to promote accountability for serious international crimes. In celebration, we will host a conference, the principal goal of which is to broaden the conversation about effective accountability mechanisms by bringing together practitioners, experts, and academics from two different communities: the international justice and rule of law fields. Despite a shared interest in increased accountability for serious crimes, these communities have had few opportunities to exchange, debate, or collaborate on practical strategies designed to strengthen domestic systems’ ability to investigate and prosecute serious crimes.

Presented by the War Crimes Research Office, PluriCourts of the University of Oslo, the American Red Cross, the American Bar Association, and the American Society of International Law
