The Workshop also served as an opportunity for the participants to exchange ideas and perspectives, in order to optimize their contributions for a collection of articles, which will be published with the help of the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation at the end of this year. As this publication is a continuous project, the participants reviewed various abstracts for the next publication in 2016 and discussed the group's general way forward. Touching on issues such as transitional justice, poaching as an international crime and Africa's responsibility in the refugee crisis, next year's publication promises to be equally insightful and relevant as the upcoming one.
The participants also had the unique opportunity to get in dialogue with two external guests - Hon. Justice Sylvie Kayitesi, Chairperson of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights and Deputy Chief Justice of the Republic of Rwanda and Ms Madeleine Nirere, Chairperson of the National Human Rights Commission of Rwanda. A chilling but educational visit to the Genocide Memorial in Kigali marked the end of a very successful meeting of the African Expert Study Group on International Criminal Justice. Those in attendance included Prof. Gerhard Kemp of Stellenbosch University Dr. Beitel van der Merwe of the University of the Western Cape among others.
