Expert: Rehabilitation of those convicted by international criminal tribunals is woefully inadequate

Barbora Hola
Wednesday, February 7, 2018 - 09:37

Much ink has been spilled on the oft-difficult and dicey process of bringing wanted perpetrators to justice. Less attention has been paid to what happens after people are convicted by international criminal tribunals and have to pay their debt to humanity behind bars. In an effort to remedy that, Barbora Hola, an Associate Professor at the Department of Criminal Law and Criminology at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, and a colleague, carried out an extensive research project to look into how such convicted persons are rehabilitated, if at all. “Poorly”, it turns out, is the answer.

Under the Sky, One should be equal as long as Human Being.

Underprivileged social class, Before the birth, even after the death, this underprivileged group should follow the pre-framed given route.

Upon realizing that crossing the given route is limited, its trial object would be named as ‘Betrayer’ or targeted as ‘Gov. Sanction’.

Extending of this status, urged and resulted let David create hand written images between # 1 and # 58.

Still, there, no one, no response, no way to get out, its condition is extended.

Its usefulness, it condition should be extended as usual.

Tragic perpetrators and imperfect victims

Thursday, September 28, 2017 - 14:38
By Dr. Mark A. Drumbl
 
It is easy to assume that only ‘evil’ people commit atrocity. And it’s equally easy to imagine all victims as ‘good’ or ‘innocent’. But the reality is far more complex. These binaries and antipodes don’t fit well. Many perpetrators, after all, are tragic -- they may begin as victims. Some victims survive – and some even thrive – because of harm they inflict upon others. The persecuted may become persecutors.
 
In recent writing, I explore how to approach the pain that victims inflict upon others. When...

Katanga victims’ reparations plan unveiled. Those resettled in Europe and America to receive additional funds

Saturday, September 9, 2017 - 10:10
By Wairagala Wakabi
 
The International Criminal Court’s (ICC’s) Trust Fund for Victims (TFV) has published a plan for implementing reparation awards to 297 victims of crimes committed by former Congolese militia leader German Katanga. According to an order by ICC judges, each victim will receive an individual symbolic compensation of US$250, while housing and educational assistance, income-generating activities, and psychological rehabilitation will form the collective reparations.
 
In March 2014, Katanga was found guilty of...

Why are ICC judges ‘punishing’ Kenyan victims for their cooperation?

Dissenting ICC judge, Chile Eboe-Osuji
Tuesday, July 19, 2016 - 09:41

When the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court indicted six Kenyans, he promised the victims and the world that Kenya would be an example on how to manage elections, avoid mass atrocities and ensure justice for the victims. But the Court has delivered on none of the above. Instead, the eight-year wait for justice through convictions and/or reparation appears to have been in vain.

Darfur Victims withdraw from ICC case against Bashir

Courtside Justice with Mark Kersten
Wednesday, November 4, 2015 - 11:33

It has been a decade since the International Criminal Court (ICC) opened its investigation into alleged mass atrocities committed in Darfur. Those ten years have been, to say the least, a rocky ride for international justice.

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. But given all of the options and the ever-present risk of war criminals returning to their old habits, encouraging them to pursue an education may be a least-worst option."

I just want to make readers understand what I am arguing. My point is about the law -- that once a convicted defendant has served his sentence, he should not be subjected to any more state-sanctioned punishment. At that point, unless trials mean nothing, his debt to the international community has been paid and he should be free to pursue his life the best he can. That does not mean that private organizations (such as employers) and perhaps even public ones (such as state-run universities) cannot take his past into account when allocating scarce resources (such as jobs or PhD fellowships). So on that point I do not disagree with Barrie or Mark. But, that said, I would hope a university would give someone like Lubanga a chance, if they were convinced of his sincerity. As I said in my post, he could add a great deal to our knowledge of how ethnic violence is generated. He's welcome to do a PhD with me at SOAS...
