How did one of the bravest and most optimistic expressions of post Cold War global power - the provision of justice for those victimised by atrocious crimes - degenerate into a system in which so few are convinced that justice is being dispensed? This book comprehensively examines the complex world of international criminal justice in several hot spots including the former Yugoslavia, Sierra Leone, Rwanda, Sudan and Uganda. The author suggests ways to provide an effective justice system that entrusts the potentially destabilising work of crime war crimes justice to the very states affected by the crimes.
