Senior Fellow, Monash University

Mark Drumbl is the Class of 1975 Alumni Professor at Washington & Lee University, School of Law, where he also serves as Director of the University's Transnational Law Institute. He has held visiting appointments at  Oxford University, Université de Paris II (Panthéon-Assas), Vanderbilt University, University of Ottawa, Trinity College-Dublin, University of Western Ontario, and University of Illinois College of Law, the University of Melbourne, and the University of Sydney.

Mark Drumbl's research and teaching interests include public international law, global environmental governance, international criminal law, post-conflict justice, and transnational legal process. His first book, Atrocity, Punishment, and International Law (Cambridge University Press, 2007) rethinks -- in theory and in practice -- how individuals who perpetrate genocide and crimes against humanity should be punished.  His recent book Reimagining Child Soldiers in International Law and Policy (Oxford University Press, 2012) challenges much of conventional wisdom when it comes to preventing child soldiering, meaningfully reintegrating child soldiers, and engaging with former child solders as vibrant contributors to post-conflict reconciliation.
