The M.C. Bassiouni Justice Award

M.C. Bassiouni as painted by Roberto Caruso.


The purpose of the M.C. Bassiouni Justice Award is to recognize outstanding service to the adjudication, prosecution, investigation, documentation, defence, analysis, diplomacy, or study of core international crimes such as war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. A number of factors will be considered when determining whether service may be outstanding, including its quality, integrity, duration, consistency, innovation, the risks or other socio-economic circumstances faced, and courage. Particular emphasis will be placed on whether the service has generated public goods or value. Academic rigour and creativity will be recognized.

It is hoped that the granting of the Award will encourage other professionals active in the field to excel in their activities. To this end, the justification that will be offered for the granting of each Award will highlight the decisive qualities of the recognized service.

The Award will not be granted more frequently than once per year, and only when a suitable candidate has been identified.

Decisions on granting the reward will be made by a Committee consisting of Professors William A. Schabas, LING Yan, CHEAH Wui Ling, former Judge Advocate General Arne-Willy Dahl, CILRAP Director Morten Bergsmo (Chair), and Mr. Alf Butenschøn Skre (Secretary).

The Award is named after Professor M.C. Bassiouni, one of the founders of the discipline of international criminal law who has dedicated his working life to the service of international law. Professor Bassiouni participated actively in the granting of the Awards between 2012 and 2017. He was a strong supporter of CILRAP’s work until he passed away on 25 September 2017.
