As the world becomes more and more globalized, international criminal law has become extremely important in preserving and ensuring the human rights of all people. Effective international criminal law protects not only the victims but also the war criminals by preserving procedural rights and substantive judicial defenses.

With a warrant out on Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir and American courts debating whether the alleged 9/11 mastermind should stand criminal trial in a civilian court or a military tribunal, a symposium on the issues faced by international prosecutors and victims will provide a forum for progressive scholarship and an open venue for discussing a dynamic area of emerging law.
