Panel Discussion: "Permanent International Criminal Court" Global Structures Convocation, Crystal City, VA. February 3-6,1994. (tape 10 in conference series)
Panelists include: Michael Scharf (law professor at New England College of Law), Walter Hoffmann (president of the Center for UN Reform Education), Melinda Borrell (activist, lobbyist), Diane Orentlicher (law professor at American University), David Kreeger (president of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation), and Benjamin Ferencz. The moderator is John McDonald.
Ferencz explains the precedent of an international military tribunal set up at Nuremberg and stresses the important element of fairness instituted there. He contends that the missing link in an international legal order is the international criminal court. He encourages involvement on all levels to develop this structure, as it is in everyone's interest to have international security and peace. Other vital components are 1) disarmament; 2) economic sanctions; 3) social justice; and 4) compulsory jurisdiction. A question and answer period follows.
