The Ford School is pleased to welcome 2013 Livingston Award winner Luke Mogelson for a panel discussion on the themes of "The Dream Boat," his New York Times Magazine story about the plight of political asylum seekers. Participants include Joel Lovell, investigations editor, The New York Times and the Ford School's own John Ciorciari and Susan Waltz.
In his book with co-author Ann Heindel, John Ciorciari examines the contentious politics behind the tribunal's creation, it's flawed legal and institutional design, and the frequent politicized impasses that have undermined its ability to deliver credible and efficient justice and leave a positive legacy.
The IPC is honored to convene this panel of intellectuals, human rights professionals and policy experts. Panelists have in depth experience with the conflicts, negotiations and political settlements in Colombia, South Africa, Guatemala and Nigeria.
About the event In a conversation moderated by Susan Waltz, Margo Picken and John Ciorciari will discuss the positive and negative effects of the UN-backed Khmer Rouge trials that began several years ago in "extraordinary chambers" of the courts of Cambodia. Will they bring "closure" to the country's dark past?
