The Impact of US Law and Policy on Transitional Justice
7 PM EST
Dr. Zachary Kaufman, J.D., Ph.D., will discuss the role of the United States in the creation of international criminal and war crime tribunals and in countering global atrocities, and why leaning in on these policies represents a prudent policy approach for the nation going forward.

(Ph.D.) and M.Phil., both in International Relations, from the University of Oxford (where he was a Marshall Scholar), his J.D. from Yale Law School (where he was an Olin Fellow and Editor-in-Chief of the Yale Law & Policy Review), and his B.A. in Political Science from Yale University. He is a Senior Fellow at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, a Lecturer in Law and Fellow at Stanford Law School, and a Visiting Fellow at Yale University‘s Genocide Studies Program. His scholarly work focuses on the fields of international law and international relations, including U.S. foreign policy and national security; international and transitional justice; human rights; genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and other atrocity crimes; social entrepreneurship; and the Great Lakes region of sub-Saharan Africa.
