Unimaginable Atrocities: Justice, Politics, and Rights at the War Crimes Tribunals

William Schabas


As international criminal courts and tribunals have proliferated and international criminal law is increasingly seen as a key tool for bringing the world's worst perpetrators to account, the controversies surrounding the international trials of war criminals have grown. War crimes tribunals have to deal with accusations of victor's justice, bad prosecutorial policy and case management, and of jeopardizing fragile peace in post-conflict situations. This book explores these controversial issues in a manner that is accessible.

Keywords: international criminal courts, international criminal law, war criminals, international trials, bad prosecutorial policy, case management, justice
