It has long been recognised that perpetrators of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide seldom carry out such atrocities on their own initiative. While such acts may not be formally approved by superiors, lack of oversight or tacit approval may implicate those in command or superior positions. Where crimes such a rape and murder are widespread, there is a greater onus on the commander of forces perpetrating such crimes to respond appropriately. The jurisprudence in relation to command responsibility remains “highly disputed” and sometimes inconsistent. The controversy of applying this mode of liability was particularly evident in the aftermath of the International Criminal Court Appeal Chamber’s decision in the Bemba case. The Court did at least confirm that the Rome Statute does not endorse the concept of strict liability. However, the Appeals Chamber’s decision seems, inter alia, to have raised the burden of proof threshold to establish command responsibility to a degree that may be almost impossible to meet in future cases. This talk examiners the doctrine of command or superior responsibility as defined by article 28 of the International Criminal Court Statute and interpreted by the Trial Chamber and Appeals Chamber. It outlines the background to the Bemba case and analyses the reasoning and inconsistencies between the decisions of each chamber in order to understand the implications for applying the doctrine in future cases.

All are welcome to attend.

 Every week staff, students and members of the local community come together to practice mindfulness i.e. present moment awareness, without judgement. 

 Sessions are led by staff, students and members of the community who have been practicing meditation for many years, though are not necessarily teachers of mindfulness.  So while these sessions do not include instruction in mindfulness, they are suitable for people with no previous knowledge of mindfulness as well as those who have been practising for many years.

'Belmont House' by Aideen Monaghan: this exhibition of drawings & sketchbooks marks the culmination of Aideen's residency at the former Anatomy building, Belmont House, from May 2016 - August 2017.  With special thanks to Prof. Peter Dockery and all at Anatomy and the support of the university's Arts office.  October 15-26 (weekdays only) | 2.00pm - 6.00pm.  Free entry - all welcome.  Ramp and chair lift available.

Artist's statement: "I began my residency in the Anatomy Department on the 30th of May 2016.  I started by documenting various artifacts in the building through drawing.  These included beeswax models of the embryo and papier-mâché models of internal organs, which originated from the Auzouz factory in France.  I was also interested in the tension between the functional and historical elements of the building.  The lecture room predates the founding of the university.  It once formed part of a residence, Belmont house, which was owned by the Whalley family.  The front section of the house was demolished during the 1930s and was replaced by a flat roof building.  Renovations and adjustments have transformed the interior of the building since then.  However, cut stone passageways, which are now blocked up and redundant fireplaces are reminders of the past activities of the space.

I received generous assistance from Professor Peter Dockery and the staff of the Anatomy department.  I was also allowed access to the dissection room, histology slides and the process of their production.
The concept of making something invisible, visible, resonated with me, as the Anatomy department is a place that many generations have passed through and left their mark upon.  My work attempts to dissect the history of Belmont house and reveal the layers of human activity witnessed there".
