Personal profile


Tonny is currently conducting research for a PhD in Law. His research is focused on transitional justice and international criminal prosecution. Using a socio-legal analysis, he explores the Rohingya crisis and the accountability nexus in Myanmar. His previous legal work informs his methodology, and incorporates criminal justice and social science disciplines. With his thesis, Tonny hopes to propose a better transitional justice framework that ensures better justice for victims within “ethno-socio” contexts.

Tonny worked as a legal officer at Vision Group in Uganda. He has been involved in international human rights work, including participation in UN Human Rights Council sessions in Geneva (Switzerland). He holds an LLM in International Human Rights Law from University of Notre Dame (United States), and a bachelor of Laws degree from Uganda Christian University (Uganda). He has attained specialised training from the European University Institute (Italy), RFK Training Institute (Italy) and Lucerne Academy for Human Rights Implementation (Switzerland). He was a recipient of the VLIR-UOS scholarship under the Sustainable Development and Human Rights Law program at the University of Antwerp in Belgium.
