In Memoriam: M. Cherif Bassiouni (1937-2017)

With him, the international community has lost the Father of International Criminal Law, an active supporter of the establishment of the International Criminal Court, and a tireless investigator of human rights violations.

The passing away of Professor Bassiouni leaves an unmistakable void in all those who have had the honor and the fortune of working at his side. The Siracusa International Institute mourns the disappearance of its father, a renowned jurist driven by an inexhaustible passion for upholding the rule of law and protecting human rights.
