Colby Faculty Discuss War in Ukraine

Politics & Pizza: War Crimes in Ukraine

April 15, 2022

The Government Dept. and the Goldfarb Center co-hosted a discussion regarding the current War in Ukraine with Colby Professor Kenneth Rodman, William R. Cotter Distinguished Teaching Professor of Government.
Professor Rodman spoke about whether Putin will be sent to the Hague and the politics of accountability for war crimes in Ukraine. The images of civilians massacred at Bucha have increased calls for responsibility for war crimes, aggression, and even genocide. Can the International Criminal Court or other bodies prosecute Russian military commanders and top political officials for these crimes, and what are the political implications of their trying to do so?
