Professor and Associate Dean Milena Sterio will publish her article, “The Karadzic Genocide Conviction: Inferences, Intent, and the Necessity to Redefine Genocide,” in the Emory Journal of International Law. Professor Sterio’s article analyzes the recent Yugoslavia Tribunal’s conviction of the former Bosnian Serb leader, Radovan Karadzic, on genocide charges, and argues in favor of a broader interpretation of the definition of genocide under the Genocide Convention. Professor Sterio’s article has been accepted, after a blind peer-reviewed paper competition process, for the American Society of International Law Research Forum, which will take place in Seattle on November 10-12 and where Professor Sterio will present this article.
Professor Sterio will also publish an article entitled “‘Frozen Conflicts’ and Secession: The Nagorno-Karabakh Region” in the German Yearbook of International Law (GYIL). The GYIL is edited by the Walther Schücking Institute for International Law at the University of Kiel, the oldest university institute for public international law, founded in 1914. Professor Sterio’s article will appear in Volume 59 (2016).
