Professor Milena Sterio participated in two meetings at the U.S. Department of State, Office of Global Criminal Justice, on November 15 and on November 17. The November 15 meeting, chaired by Professor Sterio, focused on the topic of the possibility of the establishment of a single residual mechanism for all international criminal tribunals. The November 17 meeting, also chaired by Professor Sterio, focused on the possibility for the U.S. Government to contribute financially to the International Criminal Court’s Trust Fund for Victims (U.S. law prohibits the U.S. Government from contributing financially to the ICC itself).
Professor Sterio has been working on both of these issues and advising the U.S. Department of State. Professor Sterio’s findings will be published in the form of a White Paper in the near future.
