Charles Jalloh Chairs Expert Meeting on African Union Concerns About Article 16 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court

Professor Charles C. Jalloh chaired a meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on June 19, 2010. A select group of leading international law scholars convened at the Hilton Hotel to discuss a draft position paper, which he co-authored with Professors Dapo Akande (Oxford) and Max du Plessis (Kwazulu Natal), assessing the legality and practicality of the November 2009 African Union (AU) proposal for an amendment to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC). The AU proposal will be debated by the 111 member states of the ICC during the Assembly of States Parties meeting in New York, U.S.A. in fall 2010. The paper, which is the outcome of a project initiated by Professor Jalloh and the International Crime in Africa Program, Institute for Security Studies (Pretoria, South Africa), will be published just before the New York meeting.
