Can there be such a thing as 'universal jurisdiction'? In the wake of the Rwandan and Balkan trials, will the US and Europe ever submit to similar judicial rigours for their roles in these and other conflicts? Who will judge and who will stand trial? How do we balance the demands of retribution, deterrence and 'truth and reconciliation'? And will we ever see the likes of Sharon and Kissinger in the dock? Speakers include: Norman Lamont, who has led criticism of the International Criminal Court bill in the House of Lords; lawyer Daniel Machover, who is working with the Belgian legal team on proceedings against Sharon for his actions in Sabra and Shatila; Tim Judah, writer and journalist whose books include Kosovo: War and Revenge; and Louise Christian, leading human rights lawyer, who has been acting for one of the UK detainees in Guantanamo. In the chair: David Manasian, editor of Global Agenda, the Economist.
