Doing Justice to History

Confronting the Past in International Criminal Courts

Barrie Sander

Oxford Monographs in International Humanitarian & Criminal Law

  • Develops a novel theoretical framework for examining the construction of historical narratives within international criminal courts
  • Examines how these narratives have been shaped by contestation over the selection of individuals for prosecution, as well as the scope and meaning of categories of crime and culpability
  • Critiques expectations of historical finality and closure typically associated with international criminal judgments, revealing a dynamic process of historical narrative pluralism within and beyond the courtroom
  • Illuminates the legitimation function of international criminal judgments and reflects on what struggles for historical justice reveal about the emancipatory limits and potential of international criminal courts
