Liu Institute welcomes
Professor Bruce Broomhall
Office: Liu Institute for Global Issues Room 208
Fax (604 822-6966
Bruce Broomhall is pursuing research on resource conflicts under international law while based at the Liu Institute for
Global Issues from July 2010 to June 2011. This work builds on collaborations he has undertaken over recent years
with legal and policy experts from a range of fields in attempting to craft effective legal and policy responses to the
problem of illicit, conflict-fuelling natural resource economies.
A graduate of UBC, Dr. Broomhall is professor of law at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), where he
teaches international, transnational and Canadian criminal law. His research encompasses a range of issues related to
efforts to establish an effective and legitimate system of international justice, including universal jurisdiction, the
International Criminal Court, the role of the emerging system of justice within the existing framework for managing
international peace and security, the impact of illegal economies of war on human security, the legal responsibilities of
business actors in conflict settings, and the role of children in the transitional justice process.
Professor Broomhall is interested in meeting students and Faculty with complementary interests, and also in giving talks,
guest lecturing, or otherwise participating in and assisting with research and other activities while he is here. Please feel
free to contact him.
