A Discussion on Legitimacy, Impunity, Selectivity,  Fairness and Accountability

March 17 & 18, 2016 at the Executive Conference Center at GIMPA, located in Greenhill, Accra

The Faculty of Law at GIMPA is pleased to be able to host the conference on international criminal justice at this epochal era in the life of that regime. The annual conferences present an opportunity to gather a community of scholars and academics, experts, and practitioners to critically review trends, emerging developments and challenges confronting the law in specific fields. As a school, we are convinced that the platform of a conference presents an opportunity to network in our thinking, works and strategizing as we plot to overcome existing challenges and nascent obstacles. This year’s thematic focus on international criminal justice reflects the growing importance and need to address the core barriers in the way of its development. I look forward to welcoming you to the serene Greenhill campus for a fruitful deliberation. - Dean Kofi Abotsi

The aims of the Annual GIMPA Law Conferences include, promoting scholarship and intellectual engagements among lawyers, legal academics and allied professions  in topical issues confronting society and the law, fostering a sense of collegiality among the legal academic community in the world in general, and in Africa in particular, advancing the frontiers of the law through dispassionate academic discourse, encouraging research and writing in oft-neglected and controversial areas of law and serving as a platform and catalyst for policy initiatives

The target participants of GIMPA’s Annual Law Conferences include, Legal Academics, Lawyers/Attorneys, Policy Makers, Governmental Officials, Journalists, Civil Society Organizations, Development community and Transnational justice institutions/officers.

17:00 - 19:00pm

AIPR has developed a Training Resource Manual for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention in the Great Lakes Region of Africa designed to provide guidance and insight into the nature and practice of prevention to all relevant actors in the field. This Manual was created following a baseline analysis conducted by the AIPR Africa Programs staff assessing the existing capacity in the Great Lakes Region to prevent genocide and other mass atrocities. The information gathered in this assessment directly informed the design of the Manual to ensure that it responds to the areas of greatest need as identified by those working in the field of prevention.
 
This Training Resource Manual provides a diverse range of resources that span from the roles of the state and civil society in prevention, to instruments of early warning and transitional justice, to thematic areas such as the prevention of electoral and resource scarcity related violence.
The event will feature opening remarks by AIPR's Africa Programs New York Liaison Jack Mayerhofer, followed by Owen Pell of White & Case, AIPR's Academic Programs Director Dr. James Waller, and the Africa Programs Director at AIPR, Dr. Ashad Sentongo.
