Quality Control in Preliminary Examinations, Expert Seminar

13 June 201714 June 2017

Quality Control in Preliminary Examinations, Expert Seminar, International Nuremberg Principles Academy and the Centre for International Law Research and Policy, The Hague, 13/14 June 2017 (registration by May 24)


The International Nuremberg Principles Academy, in co-operation with the Centre for International Law Research and Policy (CILRAP) and other partners, co-organizes an international expert seminar ‘Quality Control in Preliminary Examination’ in the Peace Palace in The Hague on 13-14 June 2017.

The focus of the event is on specific measures to enhance quality control and professionalism during pre-investigations (or preliminary examinations), whether in international or national criminal jurisdictions. The emphasis is placed on pre-investigation of core international crimes (war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and aggression), but much of the discussion is also relevant to other forms of crimes.

More than 30 experts from around the world – academics and practitioners from a number of jurisdictions, including China, India and African countries – will address the limits and constraints of preliminary examinations, their normative frameworks, participation in preliminary examinations, particular case studies, and particular themes such as gender and children.

This seminar is a follow-up project to an earlier ‘Quality Control in Fact-Finding Project’, and there will be a subsequent conference in 2018 on ‘Quality Control in Criminal Investigations’. These activities are closely related to the Academy’s mandate to contribute to strengthened capacity to respond to core international crimes at the national level.

There are only a few number of available seats for this event. If you would like to attend (attendance is free), please send an e-mail message to registration@cilrap.org by 24 May 2017. Please find the detailed programme here.
