It is our great pleasure to introduce our new contributor and honorary “IntLawGrrl” Ron Slye!
Professor Slye teaches law at the Seattle University School of Law. He is an internationally recognized expert in international criminal law, transitional justice, and international human rights law. He is the co-author of a best-selling casebook in the United States, International Criminal Law and Its Enforcement (Foundation Press), and The Kenyan TJRC: An Outsider’s View from the Inside (Cambridge University Press, 2018). From 1996 to 2001 he was a consultant to the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and in 2009 he was chosen by Kofi Annan to serve as one of three international Commissioners (the only non-African) with the Kenyan Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission (2009-2013). Professor Slye is also legal advisor to the Documentation Center of Cambodia, and is a founding member of the IFIT Law and Peace Practice Group, which is the world’s first dedicated advisory service on the challenge of balancing legal security and justice issues in relation to negotiated transitions out of war or authoritarianism.
