Crimes against humanity in the EU’s migration policy: facing the inconceivable, 29 January 2020

Dr Juan Branco (Lawyer) will provide an overview of the case against the EU for crimes against humanity

Abstract: In June 2019, Omer Shatz and Juan Branco submitted to the International Criminal Court (ICC) the fruit of a three year investigation, a 250-page document determining that crimes had been committed by high-ranking officials and political leaders of the EU, in the framework of the migratory policies adopted in the Mediterranean. The submission to the ICC argued that the acts in question qualified as crimes against humanity under the Rome Statute, opening the way to international prosecution. Dr. Juan Branco, who has also worked at the Office of the Prosecutor of the ICC, will provide an overview of the investigation and the process leading to the submission to the ICC.
