As part of the Opinio Juris symposium, “The impact and implications of International law: Myanmar and the Rohingya”, this post looks at the potential impact and implications of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and International Criminal Court (ICC) cases on the crime of genocide. Is there anything specific about the Rohingya cases in these two courts that may in some way develop the definition of the crime of genocide? Genocide is such a complex crime, that there is the potential for each different genocide that is adjudicated on to contribute to the development of the parameters of the crime. This is because genocide is not an event, it is a process, and while that process will bear the hallmarks of genocide, the details may vary.
