International Crimes Database & Web-environment

Dec 1, 2011 - Dec 31, 2015

The ICD project seeks to offer a comprehensive database of international crimes adjudicated by national, as well as international and internationalized courts. In addition, the website will incorporate general background information about international crimes, academic and news articles, working papers, a discussion forum, streaming and video presentations and a social media platform to facilitate and stimulate interaction by our various users. After these 4 years the Ministry of Security and Justice extended the subsidy for this project for one additional year (2016).
