Professor van den Herik gives a talk at the International Criminal Court

10 March 2015

On Friday 6 March, Larissa van den Herik gave a talk at the ICC in a panel with ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda. Professor Van den Herik spoke about the interplay between UN sanctions and international criminal prosecutions. In several recent situations, these two individualized international enforcement mechanisms have been applied in parallel. Examples are Darfur and Libya, but also DRC and Ivory Coast. In her presentation, professor Van den Herik explained how the two mechanisms of international intervention have operated in tandem in a mutually reinforcing manner in some situations, whereas in other instances decisions in one regime have had undermining effects on the co-existent regime. The talk fits within the third component of the mandate of our study group which explores instances of institutional interplay. The discussion on interplay will be continued at the London Conference on 19 March.
