The fourth ICC Scholars Forum, a collaboration between Washington University School of Law and Leiden Law School, was held on June 29-30, 2020. Launched in 2017 in conjunction with the American Coalition for the International Criminal Court (AMICC), the ICC Scholars Forum provides academics who work on and teach about the International Criminal Court the opportunity to discuss their teaching and research. The collaboration with Leiden University facilitates the dialogue between U.S. and European academics and practitioners, and allows members of the ICC prosecution, defense, and judges’ chambers to enrich the conversation.

This year, NYU’s Center for Global Affairs (Professor Jennifer Trahan) and the University of Illinois College of Law (Professor Patrick Keenan) hosted the annual International Criminal Court Scholars’ Forum. The conference is normally hosted by Washington University in St. Louis School of Law (Professor Leila Sadat), and Leiden University Law School, and held in The Hague, Netherlands.

The remote conference was moderated by Professors Trahan and Keenan and featured a wide variety of papers for discussion.  The full conference schedule may be found at:
