According to Soranib Hernández, professor of Public International Law and organizer of the event, "the field of knowledge about the role of International Criminal Courts, their regulatory framework, or how conflict resolution means can provide solutions when justice is inefficient" will be expanded. . “Throughout the sessions we will try to identify how the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court determines the veracity and authenticity of the sources, the tests and evidence, the origin of the initiation and continuation of the investigation, the Rome Statute, the protection of human rights or identify crimes against humanity in the light of International Criminal Law” explains the organizer.
