Some Kind of Justice

New book by former LAPA Fellow Diane Orentlicher, Professor of Law, Washington College of Law, American University

In her new book, Some Kind of Justice, Diane Orentlicher offers a groundbreaking and timely account of how an international criminal tribunal affects local communities and the factors that account for its changing impact over time. Drawing on interdisciplinary research as well as hundreds of interviews with Bosnian and Serbian citizens, the book illuminates two questions at the heart of contemporary debate on international criminal tribunals: What goals can we plausibly assign to these tribunals, and what factors determine their impact on societies that have seen mass violence.
