Transitional Justice

The unparalleled experience of ASU Law’s faculty and international network of experts enables the International Rule of Law and Security Program to help in building transitional justice mechanisms, including atrocity prevention and response.

The International Rule of Law and Security program is led by Ambassador Clint Williamson, former U.S. ambassador-at-large for war crimes issues. Williamson has led war crimes investigations as a prosecutor for the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia and as special prosecutor for the European Union, served as a senior White House national security policy official and as a United Nations special envoy, and held senior positions in peacekeeping missions in the Balkans and the Middle East. Williamson has also been responsible for negotiating disputes between parties in former Yugoslavia, in central Africa and in Cambodia. Currently Williamson serves, on appointment from the International Court of Justice, as presiding arbitrator of the Arbitral Tribunal for Brcko – the body responsible for resolving inter-ethnic conflicts in this strategic and highly contested region of Bosnia-Herzegovina.
