The Remaking of International Criminal Justice: Syria and a Field in Crisis

The project examines the emergence, evolution and implementation of novel modalities of investigating and prosecuting core international crimes as seen in the context of the Syrian conflict.

Oberlandesgericht Koblenz

Grounded in a decentralised institutional ethnography, the project will trace developments in the field of international criminal justice from the outset of the Syrian conflict to the present day within the parameters and context of the ongoing criminal case against Anwar, R. – the highest-ranking Syrian Regime member apprehended in Europe. The aim of the research will be to establish a ethnographic representation of the current configuration of the field of practice as seen contemporaneously and in real time.
