Antonia Okuta analyses the role played by national courts in seeking accountability for international crimes. She proceeds from the normative position that states have a residual obligation to continue investigating and prosecuting perpetrators of international crimes, even after the International Criminal Court has intervened. Okuta investigates if Kenya, Uganda and Côte D’Ivoire have carried out this obligation at the domestic level. Another focus is to see whether these three countries have met their obligations towards victims of international crimes.
