Reconciliation or Punishment? The Work of Religious NGOs on the International Criminal Court

Clara Braungart’s dissertation considered the work carried out by religious NGOs in processing conflicts in post-conflict settings.

In the context of post-conflict situations in Kenya and Uganda, the dissertation investigated the extent to which the positions that organizations take at the international level (International Criminal Court) diverge from the ones they assume at the national and local levels. It specifically focused on the question of whether religious NGOs tend to promote mechanisms for reconciliation or for international criminal justice.
