The Second Chautauqua Principles from the Global Accountability Network

The Global Accountability Network (GAN) is a consortium of universities and other organizations staffed by academics, practitioners, law students and graduate students. The network works alongside organizations such as the United Nations and the International Criminal Court to build international criminal cases. GAN was founded in 2011 by Professor David M. Crane, the Founding Chief Prosecutor of the UN Special Court for Sierra Leone. Once a year, it hosts a gathering of current and former international prosecutors of the world’s tribunals, with this year’s August meeting being the fourteenth. The chairman of this year’s event was Fatous Bensouda, the former lead Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, with the theme being “Tackling Aggression From Nuremberg to Kiev.” The group produced the below principles.
