Training Course on Core International Crimes for Ivorian Magistrates


The Nuremberg Academy partnered with the Observatoire Ivoirien des Droits de l’Homme (OIDH) and the Ivorian Ministry of Justice and Human Rights to organise the second training course on core international crimes.

This second seminar took place in Yamoussoukro, Ivory Coast, from 24 to 28 May 2022. It aimed at building the capacity of 30 Ivorian magistrates on prosecutorial strategy and adjudication of cases seeking individual criminal responsibility for perpetrators of serious international crimes. The main goal is to create a pool of magistrates specialised in international crimes.

The opening ceremony saw keynote speakers representing the OIDH, the Nuremberg Academy, the Head of Office of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the Ivorian Ministry of Justice Human Rights Council.
Participants were trained by Philippe Currat (Lawyer, Geneva Bar), Aurélia Devos (Prosecutor), Adou Richard (Prosecutor), Eric-Aimé Sémien (President, OIDH) and Abdoulaye Seye (Lead Investigator, ICC).

This second seminar was organised with the financial support of the French Ministry of Justice, the Nuremberg Academy and Open Society Justice Initiative.
