Exploring Multiple Dimensions of the Acceptance of International Criminal Justice in the Post-Nuremberg Era


The International Nuremberg Principles Academy is conducting an interdisciplinary research project on the acceptance of international criminal justice. This project aims to develop comprehensive research tools for assessing and comparing levels of acceptance in different countries with critical situations and also for analyzing dimensions and factors that influence the acceptance of the institutions and outcomes of international criminal justice.

In 2015 the project research team will develop a sound and systematic methodology, map the relevant existing studies and invite experienced academics and practitioners to discuss methodological and other issues to be addressed and assessed in relation to the acceptance or non-acceptance of international courts. 

For that purpose the Nuremberg Academy will commission in-depth analyses of the acceptance situation in particular countries and in relation to the investigation and/or adjudication of particular situations by international courts.  In addition, the International Academy will support universities and research institutions in countries with critical situations, so they can engage with professionals and practitioners in the field of peace and justice research, share knowledge and strengthen their capabilities for interdisciplinary research.
