It seems to me that the #ICC twitterverse has been especially active over the last few months. My analytics confirm it too. Massive debates that span dozens of tweets and multiple days are the norm now. What does this mean? Some thoughts 👇
We can immediately disregard the idea that anything new has happened to Twitter itself. It's not more popular than before & most of the voices engaging on #ICC issues have been here for a long time. It's just that they / we are more active now & active in much more in-depth ways.
I'm tempted by the partial explanation that traditional blogging has become less common-place in favour of Twitter micro-blogging. At the same time tho, blogs like @ejiltalk, @justice_hub @opiniojuris etc have had an uptick in #ICC related posts. JiC has not (sorry!)

Emerging narratives in the lead up to and aftermath of today's #ICC majority decision to grant the defence's "no case to answer" motion to acquit #Gbagbo & #BleGoudé 👇
(1). Doubt Cast Over Prosecutor's Investigative Strategy: The ICC Prosecutor needs to reflect critically and seriously reconsider its investigative strategy (@sevslv)
(2). Judicial Integrity: The decision demonstrates the Court's integrity to grant no case to answer motions, making it harder to depict it as a biased weapon of neo-colonial justice (@BBCNews) bbc.com/news/amp/world…

#IBARome@IntlCrimCourt⁩ Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda says emphatically that pushback by the American govt, & other states, will not deter the ICC from doing its work without fear or favour. #CrimesAgainstHumanity #genocide
ICC can be faced with total non-cooperation, dwindling resources, hostility etc. Forms part of challenge to conducting investigations. We need to anticipate such challenges. US isn’t 1st state to refuse to cooperate with ICC, eg Sudan, but we still collected evidence: Bensouda.
Since I announced investigation into Philippines. I’m sure you’ve heard response of leader, including threats against Prosecutor. But, eg, see Burundi where I opened prelim invest. Burundi immediately withdrew, but we ctd investigation & obtained satisfactory evidence- Bensouda.

1/ The #Saudi kidnapping of #Khashoggi reminds me of the kidnapping of #Hariri. It is meant to embarrass the other party, this time the gov of #Turkey, and provoke a diplomatic crisis. This is drug Cartel methods. It has no other goal than to assert power over the other.
2/ However, resorting to these methods to assert power in the political and international affairs sphere is always a sign of weakness and a sign of a power in crisis. #SaudiArabia

The Case for a ‘Strategic Backstop' mechanism for Libya

#LibyaStrategicBackstop
#Libya needs a strategic relationship with one member of the #UNSC to act as an International ‘Backstop’.

The purpose of the Strategic Backstop mechanism is to ensure effective 'Triangulation' of the #Libyan transition and ‘stop’ #Libya from falling ‘back’ into conflict
Without a strategic backstop mechanism, the unity and stability of the #UN Security Council itself is at stake.

In this thread I will lay out what why both #Libya and the International Community, need this backstop, and how it could function.

Well actual question is now credibility of amnesty now!! “Amnesty's report blaming #Rohingya ARSA forces for killing 99 hindus has been called "illogical" by the Bangladesh foreign ministry. What are the problems with the conclusions in the report? | by @shafiur
