The Judicial Issues Forum of the Brookings Governance Studies Program presented a panel discussion among leading experts on the calamity in Darfur and the international community’s failure to empower a suitable war crimes tribunal.

The session reviewed the gravity of the situation in Sudan, the controversy over efforts to grant jurisdiction to the International Criminal Court, and the limited potential of other options—such as turning to the Rwanda genocide tribunal in Arusha, Tanzania, as an alternative.
