Open University of Tanzania, International Criminal Law Centre

International criminal law (ICL) has developed rapidly in the past decade with an exponential increase in interest in ICL in Africa.  Much of the discourse around ICL has excluded African scholars. Bearing in mind the increased role ICL has played in Africa, and the shortage of African experts in ICL, the Open University hopes, through the LLM ICJ to create African experts in ICL who will enrich the debate and create a critical mass of experts in ICL.
