  • James Stewart

    Professor

    My research interests are eclectic and interconnected.
     
    First, I have spent a number of years working in international criminal law as a witness, a prosecutor and a scholar. I began my career working with victims and perpetrators of the Rwandan genocide within local settings and in Rwandan prisons. The experience informed much of my work at the intersection of theory and practice in international criminal justice.
