Professor Linda Keller Going to The Hague
May 23, 2011
Professor Linda Keller has accepted an offer to be a Visiting Professional at the International Criminal Court in The Hague during her sabbatical, from October through March. She’ll be working with Judge Ekaterina Trendafilova of Pre-Trial Chamber II.
The ICC is a treaty-based court designed to end impunity for international crimes such as genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes and aggression, should the recent amendments on aggression come into force. Pre-trial Chamber II is dealing with the situations and cases in Uganda, Kenya, Central African Republic and as of Friday Cote D’Ivoire.
“My scholarship focuses on issues that are likely raised at the pre-trial phase, like complementarity, and on the case in Uganda,” said Professor Keller. “As a result, this is the perfect opportunity for me to contribute to the work of the ICC.”
Professor Keller looks forward to drawing on her ICC experience to enhance her scholarship and her teaching of international criminal law courses at TJSL.
