Professor Sterio Presents Amicus Brief To Appeals Chamber of The International Criminal Court

Short title: 
Professor Sterio Presents Amicus Brief To Appeals Chamber of The Internatio

CSU C|M|LAW Professor Milena Sterio, along with Case Western Reserve University School of Law Co-Dean Michael Scharf, presented an amicus brief February 14, 2022 before the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague. The amicus brief deals with the application of the insanity defense in the case of The Prosecutor v. Dominic Ongwen. Professor Sterio and Dean Scharf were the lead authors of the amicus brief, which was submitted to the ICC on behalf of a small group of academics organized by the Public International Law and Policy Group (PILPG), a prominent non-governmental organization.

The defendant in the case, 45-year-old Dominic Ongwen, had been kidnapped by Joseph Koney’s Lord’s Resistance Army in northern Uganda as an eight year old and forced to become a child soldier. Over the years, Ongwen rose through the ranks to become one of the top commanders in the insurgent group at the time of his surrender to the ICC.

Criminal Justice Forum: Crimmigrators

CLE credit: 
1.0 credit hours
Weight: 
-10

Since the events of September 11, 2001, crimmigration scholars around the world have uncovered the use of seemingly ordinary powers to accomplish extraordinary things: mass deportation, surveillance, policing, and detention and incarceration, in ways that globally change the shape of migration. While the study of crimmigration usually dissects its elements and the powers that animate it, we miss a critical question if we ignore who is tasked to use those powers. The decision about who will decide a crimmigration issue can shape the decision itself, and confine or define its resolution. Three case studies illuminate how changing the decisionmaker to or from a criminal justice actor to another official or institution located the issue itself inside or outside the crimmigration framework. These examples are the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), the REAL ID Act, and asylum seekers at the U.S.-Mexico border. They translate into three seemingly disparate legal issues: whether to deport, whether to issue a drivers license, and whether to hear a claim for asylum. These case studies raise the question of how changing the decisionmaker can either exacerbate crimmigration, or inoculate against it. At bottom, they are decisions about who belongs.
