    It sounds very interesting and relevant to my Doctoral study (LL.D) area about the ICC intervention in the situation of the LRA in Northern Uganda.The ICC intervention spawned a litany of controversies, criticisms,and the peace-versus-justice debate. It brought international criminal justice to be at odds with local peace and justice initiatives. It would be appropriate for me to share this apparent justice dilemma in this interesting program.
