M Sanjeeb Hossain

Sanjeeb is studying towards a PhD at the School of Law, Warwick University with the support of a Commonwealth Scholarship. His research is being supervised by Professor Andrew Williams and focuses on the interplay between national and international standards of criminal justice at the International Crimes Tribunals of Bangladesh. The ICTs which are domestic in nature are trying crimes of the likes of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity committed against the Bengali population during the 1971 Liberation War of Bangladesh and have been criticised by various international quarters on the alleged ground that they have failed to uphold international standards of justice. Sanjeeb's research adopts a qualitative methodology by analysing historic as well as more recent documents related to the ICTs. In this process, among other things, he is re-exploring the doctrine of complementarity in the international criminal law regime and what it means for Bangladesh's effort to try core international crimes committed four decades ago.
