From Child Soldier to War Criminal: The Story of Dominic Ongwen
The Arthur V. Mauro Institute for Peace & Justice in collaboration with the UManitoba Peace and Conflict Studies Graduate Programs presents:

A Brown Bag Lecture with Dr. Kjell Anderson
Director of the Master of Human Rights Program and
Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Manitoba

Dominic Ongwen was abducted by Ugandan rebel group the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) at the age of 9, becoming a child soldier, and eventually a commander responsible for a range of atrocities against civilians and other LRA. Ongwen was recently convicted of war crimes and crimes against humanity by the International Criminal Court.

Dr. Kjell Anderson will discuss his research, which involves interviews with dozens of individuals who know Dominic Ongwen or who worked on this trial, to consider the dilemma posed by prosecuting a man for the same crimes that he is himself a victim of.
