Guest blogger: Bernadette Atuahene

It's IntLawGrrls' great pleasure to announce today's guest appearance by Professor Bernadette Atuahene (left) of the Chicago-Kent College of Law in 2005, where she focuses her scholarship on confiscation and restitution of property. Before joining the Kent Law faculty she held a number of positions in law and international development: legal consultant for the World Bank; associate at New York's Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen & Hamilton; and human rights investigator for the Center for Economic and Social Rights. While at the last of these, Bernadette received Amnesty International’s Patrick Stewart Human Rights Award on account of her work with human rights organizations in South America. As a Fulbright Scholar, she served as a judicial clerk to Justices Tholie Madala and Sandile Ngcobo of the Constitutional Court of South Africa. Bernadette's just headed back to that country for several months' fieldwork.
In her guest post below, Bernadette presents her most recent work, From Reparation to Restoration.
Heartfelt welcome!
