Drawing on the outcomes of the Conference, “Civil Society In Action: Pursuing Domestic Accountability for International Crimes”, organised by SALC with the support of Trust Africa, this publication canvases successful case studies of civil society pursuing domestic accountability for international crimes. The publication outlines existing legal frameworks and addresses challenges faced with the investigation and prosecution of international crimes in Africa. Among the recommendations are that existing penal codes be harmonised with international criminal law and the specific assistance to the ICC include the relocation of witnesses, incarceration of convicted perpetrators and the lawful detention of ICC fugitives.
