Burundi’s withdrawal from the ICC: Collapse of a system or hidden opportunity?
03.12.2016 ( Last modified: 06.12.2016 )
Widely condemned by the international community – and rightly so – Burundi’s withdrawal from the International Criminal Court (ICC) could turn out to be a blessing in disguise.
On 25 April 2016, the ICC announced the opening of a preliminary examination on Burundi. Six months later, the country walked out of the Court altogether.
Could this diplomatic drawback prove an opportunity for international justice? By trying to step away from it, Burundi could actually be facing it sooner than expected.
Pamela Capizzi, Legal Advisor and Head of TRIAL International’s Burundi program, explains this point of view in the Revue des Droits de l’Homme.
