Im Namen der Völker
In the Name of the Peoples

I have written the first journalistic book in German on the idea behind international criminal law and the politics of the International Criminal Court (ICC).

The book explores the idea of using law to achieve peace and justice, through the rule of law, and how it is put into practice at the ICC. 

“In the Name of the People: The Long Struggle of the International Criminal Court” is a critical portrait of the ICC and highlights the gap between the ambitions of a global court and the realities it faces in a world of power-driven politics.

I speak about international law and the politics around it, about the International Criminal Court and the contributions of law and diplomacy to peace.

In the past, I spoke to experts and academics, to students and non-expert audiences in several countries, including Germany, the Netherlands and Tunesia.
