Perspectives on the Legacy of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda

Featuring Barbara Mulvaney, Jill Rosenthal, Chiseche Mibenge, and Beth Van Schaack

Just months after the ICTR concluded operations in Arusha and 22 years after the Rwandan genocide, scholars and practitioners will reflect on the court’s legacy. Panelists will offer diverse perspectives on the court’s record in providing accountability for genocide and other gross human rights violations, promoting peace and reconciliation in Rwanda, and contributing to a growing body of substantive and procedural international criminal law.

Barbara Mulvaney is an International Human Rights Attorney and a former Senior Prosecutor for the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal on Rwanda. She was a Senior Advisor for the Iraqi Inspector General and Bureau of Supreme Audit, and Deputy Director for Constitutional and Legislative Affairs with the United States Department of State.

Jill Rosenthal is an Acting Assistant Professor of History at Stanford. Her work focuses on the history of migration, identity, and international aid in the African Great Lakes region, with specific focus on transnational aid to Rwandan refugees in Tanzania as part of a broader project of nation state formation and regulation—one which deeply affected regional narratives of community and belonging.

Chiseche Mibenge is the Haas Center for Public Service’s Director for Community Engaged Learning – Human Rights. Her book Sex and International Tribunals: The Erasure of Gender from the War Story was published by Penn Press. She has conducted fieldwork in Rwanda and Sierra Leone and clerked at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia.

Moderated by Beth Van Schaack, a Faculty Fellow with the Handa Center and Leah Kaplan Visiting Professor in Human Rights at Stanford Law School. Van Schaack teaches and writes in the areas of human rights, transitional justice, international criminal law, public international law, international humanitarian law, and civil procedure.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for African Studies.
