Is there a role for Asia in International Justice?

Is the international law, and especially international criminal law inclusive? As the field of international criminal law evolves, it could benefit by incorporating the diverse legal traditions that are utilized around the world.
What is the role of Asian states in developing international criminal law? And what role are their cultures and institutions likely to play in the development of international justice going forward? And if there is one, why is Asia so underrepresented at the ICC?

The Asian region has already experienced the international or internationalized prosecution of international crimes through the International Military Tribunal for the Far East (i.e Tokyo Trial), the Special Panels of the Dili District Court in East Timor, and the Extraordinary Chamber in the Court of Cambodia. Are these lessons from the past useful contributions to the development of existing and new accountability mechanisms? And will Asia take the initiative in international criminal justice outreach?

We are delighted that H.E. Judge Sang-Hyun Song, former President of the International Criminal Court together with colleagues from MICT and ICC will shed some light on these issues.
They will be joined by Judge Daqun Liu, Professor Yuma Totani and Professor Xiang Longwan, Honorary Director of the Center for Tokyo Trial Studies in Shanghai.
