This book contains some of the papers that were presented at the first meeting of the newly formed ‘African Expert Study Group on International Criminal Law’ held in September 2011 in Brussels, Belgium. The group was established under the auspices of the Multinational Development Policy Dialogue (hereinafter ‘MDPD’) and the Rule of Law programme of the German Konrad-Adenauer Stiftung (‘KAS’) in 2010 modeled on the successful sister group in Latin America. This latter group was originally founded as an expert group to monitor the implementation of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (‘ICC’) in Latin America within the framework of cooperation between KAS’ regional Rule of Law Programme and the Department for Foreign and International Law of the Institute for Criminal Law and Criminal Justice of the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen in 2002. In 2006, the Latin American group was renamed ‘Latin-American Study Group on International Criminal Law’, given its expanded focus. The Latin American group presently has 21 members from 13 Latin-American States (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Colombia, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela). It also has members from Germany, Spain, Italy as well as a representative of the ICC.
