In this presentation, Dr. Lingaas will focus on the contentious crime against humanity of apartheid, ranging from the crime’s historical origins in South Africa to its inclusion in the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Why was the crime introduced into the Rome Statute despite not being included into any earlier drafts? Why did the inclusion find support when the Apartheid Convention, upon which it is based, was not ratified by any Western States and is considered a relic of the past?

The presentation reveals the unresolved legal complexities of the crime and tries to answer the question of whether it is conceivable that the situations in North Korea, Palestine and Myanmar meet the threshold of apartheid, meaning that individual perpetrators could be prosecuted for the crime of apartheid.’

Speaker
