International Criminal Law

About This Series

CLAIHR and Grapple are proud to present this module given by Juda Strawczynski, president of CLAIHR.   People often ask Juda why we should care about International Criminal Law in Canada and further - why should Canadian resources go into trying to prosecute people who may have committed heinous crimes abroad? In this presentation, Juda answers those questions and shows that Canada ultimately does care about International Criminal Law. As a framework, Juda examines the Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes Act, and its application in the successful conviction of Désiré Munyaneza.
