The law journal Criminal Law Forum recently featured a review essay written by Dr. Alexander Heinze on the Nuremberg Forum 2018 held in Nuremberg on 19 and 20 October 2018. In more than 25 pages, Dr. Heinze provides a comprehensive summary and astute commentary of individual speeches and panels of the two-day event. According to Dr. Heinze, “The celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Rome Statute, hosted by the International Nuremberg Principles Academy, was neither a pat on the back of actors involved in the International Criminal Justice nor a symbolic celebration of the Rome Statute. It was an open and critical dialogue about the ICC.”
The Nuremberg Forum is the main annual conference organized by the International Nuremberg Principles Academy taking place in Courtroom 600 and dedicated to contemporary topics in light of advancing and promoting the Nuremberg Principles and international criminal law. This year’s conference was dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the Rome Statute, and the interlink between law, justice and politics. Panels covered key topics such as case selection, length of proceedings, victims’ participation and reparations, exercise of jurisdiction and complementarity, and state engagement and disengagement.
