David Anderson has taken part in a discussion on Al Jazeera TV (13 December) on the election of Gambian lawyer Fatou Bensouda as the next chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC).  Bensouda will become the first African to hold this post.

David was quoted as saying, "The African Union is itself quite a divided house and, although as an organisation it has given support to an African being elected, that doesn't mean to say that all African states will now get their weight behind the court.  I think that's much more problematical."

The full programme can be seen here.

Professor David Anderson is University Lecturer in African Politics
