On October 16, 2021, at the invitation of the Nuremberg International Principles Academy in Germany, Professor Charles C. Jalloh presented on the International Law Commission’s 2019 Draft Articles on the Prevention and Punishment of Crimes against Humanity for the Nuremberg 2021 Forum. He explained the key gap in the international legal framework that a treaty prohibiting crimes against humanity would add for the development of modern efforts to prosecute the most serious crimes of concern to the international community as a whole.

Separately, on October 7, 2021, Professor Jalloh presented to the African Union Commission and Trust Africa “Multi-stakeholder Convening on Transitional Justice in South Sudan” addressing the lessons of Sierra Leone and Chad for the truth and reconciliation and hybrid court proposals for atrocity crimes in South Sudan.

Professor Jalloh was an active participant in the drafting of the 2019 articles on crimes against humanity in the International Law Commission. He was also the rapporteur for the independent expert group that drafted the statute for the Hybrid Court for South Sudan. He has written extensively on both topics, including publications available on SSRN.
