Three students from the Faculty of Law at the University of Ottawa are part of the Canadian Partnership for International Justice (CPIJ) delegation at the 16th Assembly of States Parties (ASP) to the International Criminal Court (ICC).

The event, hosted by the United Nations in New York, takes place from December 4-14, 2017 and allows delegations to contribute towards enhancing criminal remedies for victims of international crimes, and finding solutions to outstanding issues that hamper the project envisioned in the Rome Statute.

The CPIJ delegation is comprised of students, academics and practitioners from various academic institutions and NGOs from across the country.

The University is proudly represented by:

  • Geneviève Geneau, a Ph.D. student under the supervision of Professor Muriel Paradelle. Geneviève’s research focuses on criminalization in international criminal law of sexual violence committed against women in the framework of genocide.
  • Nicole Tuczynski, a Master of Laws candidate. Her research interests include International Criminal Law and Canadian Health Law and Policy.
  • Annika Weikinnis, a graduate student in law. Annika currently conducts research in the field of international criminal law, specifically, the involvement of transnational corporations in international crimes.

Congratulations to Geneviève, Nicole and Annika on being selected to attend this prestigious event!
