Chile Eboe-Osuji's 2024 biography

About Chile Eboe-Osuji

A highly accomplished and decorated jurist, public intellectual and engaging communicator, Chile Eboe-Osuji has devoted his life to the cause of peace, human dignity, protection of human rights and the enduring value of the rule of law. Always keen to draw the attention of the current generation of humanity to the foundations of progressive civilisation that past generations laid in hopes of improving the human condition for the future, Judge Eboe-Osuji constantly challenges our own generation to lay down our own legacies of hope for a better life for those who follow us.

He was the 4th President of the International Criminal Court (ICC), The Hague. He now serves as the Distinguished International Jurist at the Lincoln Alexander School of Law at the Toronto Metropolitan University.

From 2012 to 2021, he served as a judge at the ICC, first as a trial judge and eventually as an appellate judge. Before joining the judiciary of the ICC, Dr Eboe-Osuji served as the Legal Advisor to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Geneva. Earlier in his career he worked as a senior prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (the UN tribunal that tried persons accused of the Rwandan genocide of 1994) and later at the Special Court for Sierra Leone (the UN-backed tribunal that tried persons accused of war crimes in the Sierra Leone civil war). He had earlier practiced law as a courtroom advocate in Canada (his adoptive country) and in Nigeria (his birth country).

In his role as a world leading academic, he has held visiting professorship and senior fellowship positions at various universities, including Stanford University, Harvard University, University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), University of Toronto, University of Windsor, among others.

He received his doctoral (PhD) degree from the University of Amsterdam (the Netherlands); his Master of Laws (LLM) degree from McGill University (Canada); and, his Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree from the University of Calabar (Nigeria).

His honours include the Goler T Butcher Medal of the American Society of International Law—awarded to “a distinguished person of American or other nationality for outstanding contributions to the development or effective realization of international human rights”; a Doctor of the University degree (honoris causa) from the University of Middlesex (England); the Gold Medal of the Honorary Patronage of the Philosophical Society of Trinity College, Dublin.

He is a member of the High-Level Legal Panel on Media Freedom and a Senior Peace Fellow of the Public International Law and Policy Group.

He has an extensive record of legal scholarship, including the books International Law and Sexual Violence in Armed Conflicts (2013); Protecting Humanity (2010); and the forthcoming The End of Immunity dealing with the legal and political history of sovereign criminal responsibility in International Law.

He is frequently invited by major television channels, such as BBC, CBC, CNN, Sky News, Al Jazeera, to share his views and help to explain some of the major global events that involve international rule of law.

Chile Eboe-Osuji's 2024 talks & topics

PEACE AS A BASIC HUMAN RIGHT

The topic engages the need to correct what is currently a failure of the organised international community to give peace the value it deserves as a right upon which all other rights depend.

PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT OF INTERNATIONAL DISPUTES

The chief purpose of this topic is to revisit the basic objective of the modern rules-based international order as it was re-imagined after World War I and re-iterated after World War II. That objective was to eradicate wars, regardless of its cause. For that reason, it was repeatedly agreed that all manner of disputes must be submitted to peaceful settlement rather than resort to war.

ECOCIDE AS AN INTERNATIONAL CRIME

This topic discusses the desirability and feasibility of using international criminal law to restrain persons who inflict extensive, lasting or severe damage to the natural environment, because of their own callousness, greed or recklessness.

ACCOUNTABILITY FOR GROSS HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS

The aim of this topic is to recall the norms of the international order which seek to hold everyone accountable for gross violations of human rights, regardless of their positions in life—even heads of state.

GLOBAL RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT CIVILIANS IN THE MIDDLE EAST (ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIANS ALIKE)

This topic undertakes the difficult topic of insisting that the leadership of both Israel and Palestine have failed in their responsibility to protect the civilian populations of both Israel and Palestine. It is now time for the international community to step in emphatically, to help the two sides to create two viable states that will live in peace—side by side.

PREVENTION OF GENOCIDE

This topic seeks to renew focus on the need to prevent genocide through the political action of states, rather than leave prevention only as something that must come only through the work of lawyers and judges in international courtrooms. Judicial proceedings take too long. But even the fastest criminal proceedings will not prevent a genocide that is in the process of being committed or about to be committed.
