International Criminal Court (ICC)

Philanthropologist in Chief reblogged this on @ THE PHILANTHROPE Society, Culture, Wealth & Philanthropy and commented:


Justice in Conflict

Mark Kersten is a researcher, consultant and teacher based in London. His research focuses on the nexus of international criminal justice and conflict resolution. Specifically, Mark's work examines the politics of the International Criminal Court and the effects of its interventions on peace, justice and conflict processes. Kersten maintains the Justice in Conflict blog. "Much of what is written at Justice in Conflict fits within the debate about the relationship between peace and justice. Understanding this relationship is an immensely difficult task and much of the literature and work done on the subject to date remains insufficient and unconvincing. Nevertheless, the difficulties in understanding the relationship between peace and justice is matched only by its importance."

What Would A Hilary Clinton White House Mean for the ICC?

In this recent article, Kersten offers insights on what a Clinton administration would mean for the International Criminal Courts.
"...it is hard to imagine any significant change in the US’s piecemeal engagement with the ICC under a Hillary Clinton presidency. Clinton – or whoever the next President is – will face some stark political challenges when it comes to international criminal justice."
