This lecture was delivered on 26 March 2015 as part of the Guest Lecture Series of the Office of the Prosecutor of the ICC. It provides an account of the evolution and diversification of trial models in international criminal law and highlights tensions between ineradicable legal pluralism and normative calls for achieving greater uniformity in international criminal procedure. It is argued that the quest for a single optimal trial model is misconceived and that such a model can only be identified considering the epistemic context and challenges faced by the court.
