Show Notes

Atrocity crimes — war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and the crime of aggression — threaten national and global security by violating our most fundamental international norms and the rights of civilian populations. Responding to such crimes is therefore a global responsibility, one frequently led by the International Criminal Court (ICC). On April 26, USIP hosted a conversation with ICC Prosecutor Khan and Ambassador David J. Scheffer to discuss the ICC’s efforts to secure justice for victims of mass atrocities, the challenges faced by the ICC in responding to ongoing atrocities in Ukraine and elsewhere, and Prosecutor Khan’s priorities for his tenure in the office.

Speakers

Lise Grandemoderator 
President and CEO, U.S. Institute of Peace 

Karim A. A. Khan, QC 
Prosecutor, International Criminal Court

Ambassador David Scheffer
Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations
