Collective Responsibility for Atrocities: Fairness, Justice and Approaches to Commission in International Criminal Law
One of the theoretical challenges for international criminal law is how to account for and adequately label the responsibility of highest-ranking leaders, often far removed from the actual physical commission of crimes. This can be called a problem of collective responsibility, because normally the responsibility is seen as shared among those in a position of military and political control within an armed movement, a regional government or a State. There is now an open dispute between the jurisprudence of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and the International Criminal Court (ICC) over the theorisation of commission in collective responsibility cases. This lecture will consider the origins, claims and limitations of each approach. Presented by Dr Douglas Guilfoyle, UCL.
As part of the UCL Colloquium in Legal & Social Philosophy 2011 Samuel Freeman will be holding a seminar discussion discussing his paper on the issues facing attempts to justify rights in democracies using a consequentialist framework.
