It's IntlawGrrls' great pleasure today to welcome Nina Tavakoli (left) as a guest blogger.
As an Associate Legal Officer at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, Nina assists the Judges of the Trial Chambers with legal research on complex issues of substantive international criminal law, procedure and evidence; in the management of trials; and in the drafting of interlocutory decisions and final judgments.
Before joining the ICTR, she was a litigation lawyer at the international law firm Lovells in London. She's also undertaken short postings at Albania's Anti Human Trafficking Unit and the Defence Section of the War Crimes Chamber of the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Nina holds an LLM in Public International Law from the London School of Economics and a BA (Hons) in Modern and Medieval History from the University of Birmingham.
In her guest post below, she discusses a recent publication, in which she argues for the classification of trafficking in women not as a transnational crime, but rather as an international offense akin to slavery.
