From 27-28 June 2014, Bangor Law School and the Bangor Centre for International Law will host a conference on proof in international criminal trials, kindly supported by the British Academy.
There is now an impressive body of literature on the precise scope, context and application of rules of evidence in international criminal trials. However, issues surrounding proof and reasoning on evidence in international criminal law have remained relatively under-examined to date. By bringing together judges, practitioners and leading scholars on evidence, international criminal procedure and analytical methods, this conference will comprehensively address issues related to proof in international criminal proceedings. These issues include, inter alia, the means by which inferences are drawn, how reasoning on findings of fact is articulated in judgments, and how witness credibility is assessed. Participants will analyse some of the challenges of fact-finding in the complex context of international criminal trials, which often involve large masses of evidence and hundreds of witnesses.
Confirmed speakers include:
Professor Terence Anderson, University of Miami
Anna Marie Brennan, University College Cork
Professor Nancy Combs, College of William and Mary School of Law
Judge Teresa Doherty, Residual Special Court for Sierra Leone
Professor John Jackson, University of Nottingham
Dr Mark Klamberg, University of Uppsala
