Professor Gordon to Present at University of Missouri School of Law
Professor Gregory Gordon will be presenting Complementarity and Alternative Justice at the University of Missouri School of Law Faculty Colloquium Series, in Columbia, Missouri.
"Certain commentators believe that domestic resort to alternative justice mechanisms (ARMs) can relieve the International Criminal Court of its obligation to prosecute under the complementarity principle. Professor Gordon proposes a concrete set of analytic criteria the ICC can use to formulate an admissibility test for conducting complementarity analysis in difficult cases of municipal reliance on ARMs. In the end, this analysis helps illuminate our complex understanding of the relationship between international criminal law and local initiatives in situations of gross human rights violations."
