The Raoul Wallenberg Institute, in partnership with the East Africa Law Society (EALS), held a three-day workshop in Arusha, Tanzania in 2012 to discuss East African regional perspectives on international criminal law and justice.
This report, “Workshop on Regional Approaches to International Criminal Law: East African Perspectives”, is a joint publication developed by the Institute and EALS. It serves to capture the proceedings from the workshop and to present the recommendations stemming from the proceedings.
A carefully selected group of legal experts from the region facilitated the workshop in 2012. They were complemented by international experts in the area of international criminal law. The participants were drawn from the five East African Community (EAC) countries and comprised legal practitioners – both from government and private sector lawyers – as well as representatives of regional institutions and academia.
