The U.S. and the Struggle for International Justice in Ukraine

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has resulted in an unprecedented alignment of international actors supporting accountability processes. And the atrocities committed in Ukraine have been extensively documented. But achieving accountability through international mechanisms like the International Criminal Court is more challenging than it seems. Drawing on his recent experience as a policy advisor in the Pentagon, Professor Boduszyński will discuss the political, legal, diplomatic, and other challenges that efforts to promote accountability through international institutions face.

Mieczysław (Mietek) Boduszyński is Associate Professor of Politics and International Relations at Pomona College. Prior to joining Pomona, Boduszyński was a diplomat with the U.S. Department of State with postings in Albania, Kosovo, Japan, Egypt, Libya and Iraq. During the 2022-2023 academic year, he worked at the Pentagon for the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy as a policy advisor on issues related to civilian protection as well as atrocities, war crimes and accountability in Ukraine.
