It is my great pleasure to announce the publication of The Legitimacy of International Criminal Tribunals (CUP 2017), co-edited by Nobuo Hayashi and myself.
With the ad hoc tribunals completing their mandates and the International Criminal Court under significant pressure, today’s international criminal jurisdictions are at a critical juncture. Their legitimacy cannot be taken for granted. This multidisciplinary volume investigates key issues pertaining to legitimacy: criminal accountability, normative development, truth-discovery, complementarity, regionalism, and judicial cooperation. The volume sheds new light on previously unexplored areas, including the significance of redacted judgements, prosecutors’ opening statements, rehabilitative processes of international convicts, victim expectations, court financing, and NGO activism.
Authors were selected from a variety of disciplines including law, philosophy, criminology, etc:
