This seminar will provide insights from eminent international lawyers on the recent determination by the International Court of Justice that it has jurisdiction entitling it to hear substantive argument on the application to the Court to examine Gambia’s genocide allegations against Myanmar concerning genocide and crimes against humanity perpetrated against the Rohingya population.

Dr Binoy Kampmark is a senior lecturer and researcher on global studies at RMIT University in Melbourne.  He has written extensively on international legal issues concerning the Rohingya, and also on terrorism, international peace and security.  He is very well acquainted with the Rohingya situation and Australia’s policy options.  

Dr Jonathan Liljeblad is an associate professor of international law at the Australian National University.  He has also worked with the international law department of Yangon University and has considerable expertise in the Myanmar’s efforts to re-establish the rule of law.

Dr Catherine Renshaw, professor of law at Western Sydney University, will comment on the remarks of the two other speakers.  She has years of experience with law and legal developments in Myanmar and will help shape the discussion which will follow the speakers’ presentations

You may be able to switch on the video from time to time just to see who is speaking, but definitely don’t use the video mode if you wish to speak yourself.  You can also pose questions using the chat function.  The whole seminar will be uploaded later on the AMI website and Facebook page.
