Washington and Lee law professor Mark Drumbl, director of the Transnational Law Institute, participated in an online symposium hosted by the blog Opinio Juris and the NYU Journal of International Law and Politics. The symposium focuses on a recent paper titled The (Re)collection of Memory After Mass Atrocity and the Dilemma for Transnational Justice, by Drexel law professor Rachel Lopez. Drumbl, who has written extensively on genocide and mass atrocity, was one of four participants to comment on the paper. His submission is titled “The Memories of Collectives, the Gadgetry of Victimhood.”
Drumbl is currently a visiting scholar at the Center for International Criminal Justice at VU University, Amsterdam. While abroad, Drumbl has given a number of presentations and media interviews on topics including the Supreme National Tribunal of Poland and child soldiers in Columbia.
