Parisa Zangeneh is a newly qualified lawyer with interests in international criminal law, the law of armed conflict, and international human rights law. Parisa has developed these interests during internships in the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, and the Trial Chambers of the Special Court for Sierra Leone and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.
Parisa is currently a Ph.D. student in international law, and she completed her LL.M. at the School of Oriental and African Studies, her LL.B. from the University of Edinburgh, and her B.A. from McGill University. She would like to thank IntLawGrrls for including her and for allowing her to contribute, and she is particularly honored to be a part of this community. [Editor’s note: It’s our pleasure!]
Parisa’s first post will discuss sexual violence against men and boys, prosecutorial discretion at the ICC, and the Ntaganda case. Heartfelt welcome!
