Ten Years Code of Crimes against International Law in Germany – Opportunities and Shortcomings

conference

15.05.2012, 00:00 Uhr

Ten years have passed since the Code of Crimes against International Law came into effect. This means that for a decade there has existed a German law according to which the most serious violations of human rights around the world can be prosecuted before a criminal court in Germany. The Code of Crimes against International Law has so far rarely been applied in practice. Several of the participating human rights organizations criticize above all else the refusal to investigate the case of the Uzbeki Interior Minister Almatov’s stay in Germany in 2005. We invite you to discuss several questions such as the reason for the extremely rare application of the law, whether or not this was intentional, which opportunities and new perspectives arise from the Code of Crimes against International Law and where possible shortcomings may lie in its implementation.
 
Two panel discussions aim to show the prospects for Germany and the international community from the perspective of science, practitioners and human rights organizations. A particular focus on the legal and technical aspects of the law and its practical implementation by the relevant German authorities will create a link to legal policy classification.
 
Where does Germany locate itself on the international stage of the criminal prosecution of human rights crimes? Will Germany‘s position on foreign policy to strengthen and apply the International Criminal Law be reflected on a national level? Which expectations do international human rights organizations have of Germany and where lie any possible shortcomings between demands and reality when implementing the Code of Crimes against International Law?
  These questions, amongst others, will be raised by participants of both panel discussions who bring a wealth of practical and theoretical experience.
