Justice Belied: The Unbalanced Scales of International Criminal Justice

Friday, April 10, 2015 @ 7:30 pm

Book Launch with Editor John Philpot & Contributor Phil Taylor

Written by practicing criminal defense lawyers, jurists, investigators, and specialized journalists, this book criticizes the whole initiative of international criminal justice and considers the idea that it must be abandoned in the name of justice. Has foreign policy trumped justice? How are equity, equality before the law, absence of selectivity, protection of witnesses, and enforcement affected? How are lives of citizens throughout the world changed by International Justice?

Speakers
John Philpot has thirty years’ experience as a criminal defence lawyer, including twenty in international criminal justice. He has represented clients before the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, including the Appeal Court in The Hague, and the International Criminal Court.

Phil Taylor was defence investigator at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda and is currently Radio Host for the Taylor Report on CIUT.fm
