The Consultative Conference on International Criminal Justice was held at United Nations Headquarters in September 2009.

Participants included leading international institutions, state actors, and non-governmental organizations working to promote lasting security and end impunity for the world’s gravest crimes. The mini-documentary shown above, “International Relations Meets International Justice” is one of a series created by Skylight Pictures from the proceedings of the Conference. Each of these videos, 5-to-7 minutes long, highlights a contemporary issue facing the system of international criminal justice.
