Can international criminal law protect fundamental procedural human rights?


About the research

"Dystopian forms of justice are not a fantasy. Today states and armed groups all around the world employ unfair mass trials and arbitrary detention as a weapon." That's why Diletta Marchesi (KU Leuven) investigates the role international criminal law can play in safeguarding human rights to freedom and a fair trial.

Having studied at six universities in five countries, boundaries are not Diletta Marchesi’s cup of tea. Realising the intersection between her international spirit and her passions for the machinery of criminal justice and human rights, she committed herself to international criminal law—the area of criminal law that, disregarding boundaries, copes with human atrocities. She is currently a PhD student at the KU Leuven Institute of Criminal Law.
