Abstract

Different African people have reconciliation and local processes of achieving peace and justice. The question is if these regional traditions have to be considered by the ICC Prosecutor in order to analyze cases or to forgo a prosecution in accordance with article 53 of the Rome Statute. Could the Prosecutor consider that an investigation would not serve the interests of justice taking into consideration the traditional practices of the African peoples involved? This question is especially relevant because of the supposed existence or construction of a universal or global standard of criminal justice.
