New visitor at iCourts - Owiso Owiso

Owiso Owiso is a Doctoral Researcher in Public International Law at the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance, University of Luxembourg. In this capacity, he also delivers the Advanced International Law course in the university’s LL.M 1 programme. Owiso’s PhD project engages in a dual interrogation of the basis in international law for the exercise of elements of sovereign authority by regional inter-governmental organisations, and the application of this authority to accountability for international crimes. The project uses the European Union (EU) and the African Union (AU) as case studies, with specific focus on the EU’s engagement with the Kosovo Specialist Chambers and Specialist Prosecutor’s Office and the AU’s engagement with the proposed Hybrid Court for South Sudan. Owiso’s general research interests include public international law, international organisations, international criminal justice, transitional justice and human rights.
