Thomas Lubanga: From prison to PhD?

Thomas Lubanga at the ICC
Monday, August 31, 2015 - 13:02

In a post for Justice Hub last week, Mark Kersten asked whether perpetrators or alleged perpetrators of mass atrocities should pursue PhDs. After presenting his arguments for and against, Mark concluded that the "pursuit of higher education may leave a bitter taste in the mouths of some.
