It's IntLawGrrls' great pleasure to welcome as today's guest blogger Anne Heindel (right).
Anne's a Legal Advisor to the Documentation Center of Cambodia. She advises the Center's Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia Response Team, and manages its legal associate program. Her guest post below -- the latest in our ongoing series on Khmer Rouge accountability -- analyzes a detention decision of the ECCC in light of the jurisprudence of various human rights and international criminal tribunals.
Prior to joining the Center, known familiarly as DC-Cam, Anne was Assistant Director of the War Crimes Research Office at American University, Washington College of Law, where she supervised legal research and writing on new questions of humanitarian and international criminal law for clients including the International Criminal Court, the Special Court for Sierra Leone, the ECCC, and the Special Panels for the prosecution of serious crimes in East Timor. She has also worked for several human rights NGOs. Anne holds an LL.M in international studies from New York University School of Law and a J.D. from the University of California Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco.
Heartfelt welcome!
