Sangkul Kim

Dr. Sangkul Kim is a Research Fellow at the Centre for International Law Research and Policy and Part-Time Lecturer at Korea University Graduate School, Department of Law, Seoul. He served as Associate Legal Adviser at the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (2004-08), as a member of Legal Advisory Section, Lubanga Trial Team, Bemba Trial Team, and Katanga and Ngudjolo Trial Team. He earned a Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) degree from Korea University and Master of Laws (LL.M.) from Georgetown University Law Center. In 2015, he obtained Doctor of Juridical Science (S.J.D.) degree from Georgetown University Law Center. His doctoral dissertation (‘A Collective Theory of Genocidal Intent’) explored the concept of genocidal intent from a collective perspective, whilst criticizing the individualistic approaches to genocidal intent which have thus far governed the relevant jurisprudential and academic analysis.
