From 8-11 December 2014, Andrew participated in a training session for senior Tunisian prosecutors and judges on the principles of international criminal law (ICL) and Tunisia’s obligations under various international treaties, including the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, which Tunisia became the first North African state to ratify in 2011.
The programme is run by the International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute. Tunisia was the birthplace of the Arab Spring and, as a result of the ouster of the Ben Ali government, is having to deal with the consequences of that oppressive regime. The course was designed to ensure that local prosecutors and judges have a good understanding of the core principles of ICL and its implementation in domestic courts.
Andrew was one of four ICL experts who presented the lectures over the four days of the course, having previously prepared the 2013 update to the IBA Human Rights Institute’s Manual on International Criminal Law.
