Lara Nettelfield on Afghanistan's Lack of Education
Dr. Lara J. Nettelfield has taught/been lecturer on international relations, international justice and political science at Exeter University (UK), Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals (Spain) and Columbia University (US) where she also completed her Doctorate/Masters. She has also worked extensively in the field particularly in Bosnia & Herzegovina including International Commission on Missing Persons, NATO Parliamentary Assembly and OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe).
Nettelfield is the author of Courting Democracy in Bosnia and Herzegovina: The Hague Tribunal's Impact in a Postwar State (Cambridge University Press, 2010), which former Hague prosecutor Richard Goldstone has called “essential reading, well-balanced and realistic.” This volume argues that the International Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) has in fact made a substantial contribution to Bosnia and Herzegovina's transition to democracy. The Book won the 2011 Marshall Shulman Book Prize of the Association of Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES). She is now completing her new book: "Srebrenica in the Aftermath of Genocide."
