Washington & Lee law professor Mark Drumbl spoke as a panelist at the recent annual meeting of the American Society of International Law. On Friday, April 11, 2014, Professor Drumbl joined other international criminal law scholars for a discussion entitled “Punishment and Sentencing in International Criminal Law”.
From the program:
International criminal law (ICL) has sought to establish effective mechanisms to hold accountable perpetrators of atrocity crimes and grave breaches of international humanitarian law. ICL sentencing, however, remains under-examined doctrinally, conceptually, and empirically. This panel will address various aspects of ICL sentencing, including an empirical assessment of the sentencing jurisprudence, the relevance and viability of the domestic experience with punishment, and the advancement of new theories and doctrinal frameworks sui generis to international criminal justice.
This is a subject Professor Drumbl explored in his book Atrocity, Punishment and International Law and continues to address in his scholarship. Read more of Professor Drumbl’s scholarship here.
