From Timbuktu to The Hague: The War Crime of Intentional Attacks on Cultural Property
Professor Mark A. Drumbl, of Transnational Law Institute of Washington and Lee University, presented a working draft of his work From Timbuktu to The Hague: The War Crime of Intentional Attacks on Cultural Property. This work examines that the guilty plea offered a path forward for both Al Mahdi and the people of Timbuktu. The verdict and sentence placed the crime of intentional destruction of cultural property within the heart of unacceptable conduct during armed conflict, and finally the judgment authenticated what happened to the shrines, why, and explained why such desecration is so hurtful.
