Research

Title of thesis: A critical rearticulation of the role of victims within international criminal justice and its contribution towards positive peace

2015

Summary of research

This thesis engages traditional liberal critiques of international criminal law (ICL) and conceptions of victimhood, examining if the limited
achievements of the victim-centred approach are systematic of fundamental challenges arising from modern international law. This examines the manner in which an alternative pluriversal conceptualisation of victims in ICL could provide an opportunity to work towards a goal of positive peace in accordance with wider peace processes.
