n Africa Conflict Monthly Monitor - Letter from the founding editor

Volume 2013, Issue 12
  • ISSN :


This edition of (ACMM) begins with a thorough examination of Africa's relationship with the International Criminal Court (ICC). Throughout 2013, the relationship has been fraught with criticism of the ICC (mostly from criminal defendants under indictment by the court and their sympathisers) building to a crescendo that occurred with a special meeting of the African Union on the issue of the continent's continuing cooperation with the court. The issue is one of the most important matters impacting the future ability of African leaders, war lords and militias to mount crimes against humanity and war crimes in Africa. At stake is the fate of international law where local law fails versus unbridled tyranny in Africa, and, for outsiders, the attractiveness of Africa as an investment environment and development partner.
