August marks the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC). The statute, the treaty that established the ICC, was adopted at a diplomatic conference in Rome on 17 July 1998 and it entered into force on 1 July 2002.

In this seminar, the University of Tasmania's Dr Gwynn MacCarrick (Transnational Crime) and Dr Matt Killingsworth (International Relations) will explore the precursors to the signing of the Rome Statute and assess the impact that the International Criminal Court has had in achieving global justice.

He is currently researching the history of the laws of war and new forms of international criminal justice. His past research focused on opposition and dissent in Communist Eastern Europe, justice in post-Communist Eastern Europe and the changing nature of war.
