I’m not the only Swede who knows about the rape epedemic in Congo. We had a class on International Criminal Law today and the person who talked took the case from Congo as an example when trying to determine if the International Criminal Court (ICC) had jurisdiction or not. That teacher is awesome!

I think it’s really good when our teachers don’t just teach theory, but use examples from real life. So far every teacher on this course has used theoretical examples like “if country A does this what happens?”. This time the teacher brought up a topic that needs a lot more attention than it gets. She even told us what we could do if we wanted to try and get ICC to try the case^^ Not that they’ll listen to a bunch of first year uni students, but there might be hope ^^
