Atrocities and International Accountability Beyond Transnational Justice by United Nations

Atrocities and International Accountability Beyond Transnational Justice


Atrocities and International Accountability Beyond Transnational Justice by United Nations

Rebuilding societies where conflict has occurred is rarely a simple process, but where conflict has been accompanied by gross and systematic violations of human rights, the procedure becomes fraught with controversy. This volume brings together eminent scholars and practitioners with direct experience of some of the most challenging contemporary cases of international justice, and illustrates that justice and accountability remain complex ideals.
