New EJIL: Live! Interview with Dr Michelle Burgis-Kasthala

Written by

In this episode of EJIL: Live! Professor Joseph Weiler speaks with Dr Michelle Burgis-Kasthala, Lecturer in Public International Law at the University of Edinburgh Law School, about her article “Entrepreneurial Justice: Syria, the Commission for International Justice and Accountability and the Renewal of International Criminal Justice”, which appears in our 30:4 issue. In the article, Dr Burgis-Kasthala evaluates the work of the Commission for International Justice and Accountability (CIJA) and argues that this form of “entrepreneurial justice” may be filling a gap in the field of international criminal law. The conversation sweeps across many of the interesting issues explored in Dr Burgis-Kasthala’s article: What is the CIJA and how is it filling a gap in the international criminal law field? What is meant by the term “entrepreneurial justice”? How can the results of this type of private-public partnership be assessed? Does the methodology used in the research pose particular problems and questions? The interview was recorded at the IE Law School, Madrid.
