Abstract

Promoting Accountability under International Law for Gross Human Rights Violations in Africa is pre-eminently a study on the work and contribution of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), the first international court dedicated exclusively to challenging impunity for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes committed in Africa. Co-edited by Charles C. Jalloh and Alhagi B.M. Marong, this volume is dedicated to Hassan Bubacar Jallow, the Tribunal’s longest serving Chief Prosecutor. The contributors, including eminent scholars and practitioners of international criminal law, discuss various aspects of the law, jurisprudence and practice of the Tribunal over its twenty year existence, while also drawing lessons for current and future international courts such as the International Criminal Court. The themes covered include the role of the international prosecutor; concurrent jurisdiction between national and international courts; core international crimes such as genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity; sexual violence in armed conflict; the relationship between national and international courts; the role of other international institutions in challenging impunity; and the place of African languages in international criminal trials.

Keywords: International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, Rwandan Genocide, Hassan Jallow
