Bloddiamanter og internationale forbrydelser

Ph.d.-stipendiat Iryna Marchuk har netop publiceret en artikel i den anerkendte Yale Journal on International Affairs. Artiklen har titlen "Confronting Blood Diamonds in Sierra Leone: The Trial of Charles Taylor".

Fra artiklens konklusion:

"Sierra Leone is the perfect illustration of boundless human greed for diamonds. As the name ‘blood diamonds' suggests, these gemstones became a symbol of thousands of ruined human lives. The magnificent legacy of the work of the Special Court for Sierra Leone stands in stark contrast to the people of Sierra Leone who suffered from some of the most heinous and brutal crimes in the history of mankind."

Iryna Marchuk er medlem af forskningsgruppen om europæisk og international strafferet, EICRIM.

Artiklen kan læses i Yale Journal on International Affairs, Spring and Summer 2009, Volume 4, Issue 2, Page 87-99
