Why are Special Courts needed, and do they help achieve justice? Could Libya benefit from a Special Court? How can a Special Court be compatible with other international mechanisms? To unravel all this, hosts Elham and Marwa talk to prominent American lawyer and former US Ambassador-at-Large for War Crimes Issues, Stephen Rapp.
Stephen Rapp has over twenty years of experience in the field of international justice and accountability and he served as the Chief Prosecutor of the Special Court for Sierra Leone.
