Quality Control in International Fact-Finding
Outside Criminal Justice for Core International Crimes,
Florence, 20 May 2013
Please see the detailed concept and programme of the 2013 LI Haopei Seminar on the ‘Quality Control in International Fact-Finding Outside Criminal Justice for Core International Crimes’ (Florence, 20 May 2013) at http://www.fichl.org/activities/quality-control-in-international-fact-finding-outside-criminal-justice-for-core-international-crimes/. The quality of the mandate, independence, work processes and reporting determine the utility, efficacy and legitimacy of international fact-finding commissions and inquiries. Increasing the awareness and understanding of quality control may enhance the value of international fact-finding to relevant stakeholders. To serve the interests of professionalization, this seminar addresses how the quality of international fact-finding, -analysis and -reporting can best be improved.
Not directly related to the seminar, let me kindly inform you that the preeminent online source of legal information on international criminal law and serious human rights violations that may amount to such crimes – the ICC’s Legal Tools Database – is now available in Arabic, Chinese and Spanish in addition to English and French (see http://www.legal-tools.org). More than 61,000 legal sources are full-text searchable, cost free, covering all main international and national decisions, national legislation, international legal instruments, and the preparatory works of the ICC law. New is a collection of academic publications in international criminal law. By e-mailing your publications to email@example.com, you help making the ICC Legal Tool Database even more useful. The unrestricted archive of the United Nations War Crimes Commission is also about to be added to the Database.
