Event Details

Speaker: Judge Joanna Korner CMG KC,

International Criminal Court

We are delighted to announce that Judge Joanna Korner CMG KC, of the International Criminal Court, has agreed to give this year's lecture on the fascinating subject of "Immunity and International Criminal Tribunals". Judge Korner will trace the evolution of the doctrine of immunity from prosecution for heads of State and other State officials, from the Tokyo and Nuremberg Trials through to the International Criminal Court. Whether immunity can act as a bar to the arrest and prosecution of alleged perpetrators of international crimes remains a highly topical and hotly debated area and we look forward to a stimulating lecture and Q & A session.
