The International Nuremberg Principles Academy – in co-operation with the Centre for International Law Research and Policy (CILRAP) and nine other distinguished partners from India, China, Japan and Europe – is pleased to inform you of the international expert seminar "Philosophical Foundations of International Criminal Law" that took place at the Indian Law Institute in New Delhi on 25-26 August 2017.
More than 30 experts analyzed foundational concepts in international criminal law, correlated the teachings of leading philosophers with the discipline, and explored the potential and limits of the discipline. The project seeks to clarify and deepen the intellectual roots of international criminal law. Such anchoring in older and more diverse schools and traditions of thought should contribute towards maturing international criminal law as a discipline, and cement the consensus around its basic building blocks. The project also aims to offer reflections on how the discipline of international criminal law should evolve further.
