African governments are urged to nurture judicial systems that can prosecute people regardless of their political status otherwise the continent could end up with the International Criminal Court (ICC).
These are some of the highlights at a symposium on peace, security and justice convened at the Rwanda National Police Headquarters in Kigali.
The symposium attracted senior Police students from across Africa, offers a Masters of Arts in Peace Studies and Conflict Transformation in collaboration with the University of Rwanda’s Centre for Conflict Management.
According to organisers, the symposium theme is “deepen the students’ grasp of the nexus between human security and sustainable peace and development.”
Deliberations focused on the relationship between traditional security and human security, and how to keep pace with the new security dimensions in terms of designing adaptive approaches to human security.
