Have a question you'd like to ask the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court?
Now's your chance.
Wearing my hat as a Vice President of the American Society of International Law, yours truly, Diane Marie Amann, has the honor of joining ICC Deputy Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda (right) in a luncheon dialogue from 12:30-2:30 p.m. this Friday, March 25, in Plaza I & II at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C. (photo credit)
Bensouda will begin by describing the process of preliminary examinations, by which OTP decides whether to open an investigation, and will touch on certain matters now before the court. Before audience Q&A, Bensouda and I will engage in a discussion of ICC hot topics.
That's where you come in.
Please feel free to communicate your questions for the Deputy Prosecutor Bensouda, either by posting a comment to this message or by e-mailing us at intlawgrrls@gmail.com. Will try to include topics of interest in Friday's discussion.
This lunch is one of many many events at ASIL's 105th Annual Meeting, which begins tomorrow. Full program here; prior IntLawGrrls posts on events at the meeting are available here. For persons who can't attend in person, many sessions -- including the Bensouda lunch -- may be viewed live on demand thanks to FORA.tv. Details here.
Hope to see you there!
