Dr Thomas Obel Hansen presented "Preliminary Examinations, Complementarity and State Power: Does the ICC have a Role in Prosecuting British War Crimes in Iraq?to Law students at Strathmore Law School in Nairobi, Kenya.

Thomas' lecture was from a British Academy funded project on the International Criminal Court's examination of alleged British war crimes in Iraq.

"Around 30 Law students attended the International Criminal Law module where I gave the talk and we had a very engaging session discussing profound issues such as ICC-State relations, power-politics and international justice and the role of preliminary examinations galvanising domestic accountability processes."
