Symbolic Expression at the ICTY – a workshop organized by Aksenova

Marina Aksenova has organized a workshop at the CEU discussing the symbolic expression at the ICTY.

Marina Aksenova has organized the closing event at the CEU entitled “Symbolic Expression at the ICTY”. The event took the shape of a workshop, and consisted of four different parts. Firstly, an artistic performance followed by the presentation of a chapter ‘Symbolic Expression at the ICTY’ by Marina Aksenova. Thirdly, Judge Howard Morrison (International Criminal Court, ex-ICTY) and Professor Renata Uitz (CEU, Legal Studies Department) offered their comments and observations. A Q & A, followed by a reception, concluded the workshop.

The purpose of the workshop was to discuss the symbolic expression at the ICTY, which manifests itself in a number of ways: through the process of its establishment, its institutional design, rhetoric in the judgments, and, finally, through the way in which the ICTY and scholarly community frames its achievements and failures.
