------------------------------------------------------

This week, diplomats and civil society representatives from around the world converge in Kampala, Uganda, to chart the future of the International Criminal Court. For the next two weeks, while this historic event occurs, the Liu Institute for Global Issues will be hosting an online forum for debate and comment at http://blogs.ubc.ca/ligi/. The forum will be analytically rigorous but accessible to a general public, addressing the ICC and related issues of transitional justice, international law and politics, post-conflict reconstruction, and transnational civil society.

Three University of British Columbia doctoral students - Adam Bower, Asad Kiyani, and Chris Tenove - will facilitate the dialogue. They are posting their own analyses and soliciting contributions from academics and practitioners. Adam and Chris are in Kampala now and will be offering daily reportage as the Review Conference develops.

We encourage contributions from readers -- that means you! If you have a substantive addition to make to the debate, please add a comment to an existing post or email a submission to Chris, Adam, and Asad at LIGI-ICC@gmail.com.

We hope you enjoy the site!
