Sudan’s President Bashir and the International Criminal Court Focus of NYU Roundtable, March 4

N-322, 2008-09

New York University’s Institute for Public Knowledge will host a roundtable discussion on the International Criminal Court and Omar al-Bashir, the president of Sudan, on Wednesday, March 4, 4-5 p.m., 20 Cooper Square, 5th Floor Conference Room (between 5th and 6th Streets). The public may call 212.377.2700. The event is co-sponsored by the Social Science Research Council. RSVP at: https://www.nyu.edu/ipk/

Reporters wishing to attend must RSVP to James Devitt, NYU’s Office of Public Affairs, at 212.998.6808 or james.devitt@nyu.edu.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague is expected to issue an arrest warrant for President al-Bashir on March 4. The Sudanese president has been accused of orchestrating a campaign of violence against Darfur’s ethnic Fur, Masalit, and Zaghawa. Amnesty International says 300,000 people have been killed and nearly 3 million others displaced since the attacks began in 2003. If the warrant is granted and an arrest carried out, Bashir would become the first sitting head of state to be tried before the ICC since the court opened its doors in 2002.

Panelists for the roundtable include: Alex de Waal, program director at the Social Science Research Council; Mahmood Mamdani, a professor of government and anthropology at Columbia University; and Peter Rosenblum, a professor of human rights law at Columbia Law School.
