Sexual Slavery And Customary International Law, Patricia Viseur Sellers, Jocelyn Getgen Kestenbaum Jan 2020

Sexual Slavery And Customary International Law, Patricia Viseur Sellers, Jocelyn Getgen Kestenbaum

Book Chapters

The Hissène Habré trial and appellate judgments represent watershed legal decisions rendering long-denied justice to victims of the brutal Chadian regime. Delayed charges of credible sexual violence inflicted upon both males and females challenged the judges of the Extraordinary African Court (“EAC”) in Senegal. Legal characterizations of sexual assaults ultimately attributed to Habré represent significant jurisprudential advancements on rape, sexual slavery and torture as international crimes.

The EAC’s observations acknowledge that sexual slavery constitutes part of the actus reus of enslavement as crime against humanity and of slavery as a war crime. While agreeing with the Chambers that sexual ...

Reorienting Disclosure Debates In A Post-Citizens United World, Katherine A. Shaw Dec 2018

Reorienting Disclosure Debates In A Post-Citizens United World, Katherine A. Shaw

Book Chapters

Disclosure is often an afterthought in debates about money in politics. Reformers have tended to take disclosure for granted, devoting little time to developing and refi ning the affi rmative case for it.

Reformers have devoted substantial attention to the holes in the current regime in the post- Citizens United era— so- called “dark” and “gray” money 1 — and have considered ways to bring such activity into the light. Yet even if they are successful, such expansion efforts ...
