Some Kind of Justice: The ICTY's Impact in Bosnia and Serbia

12:00PM - 02:30PM Washington College of Law NT01

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?

Please join the Washington College of Law’s War Crimes Research Office and Center for Human Rights & Humanitarian Law at the book’s launch, featuring:

Diane Orentlicher, Author & Pr ofessor of Law, Washington College of Law

Ivana Cvetkovic Bajrovic, Associate Dir ector for Eur ope,
National Endowment for Democracy

Dapo Akande, Pr ofessor of Public Inter national Law, Univer sity of Oxfor d

Moderated by Tom Gjelten, Religion and Belief Correspondent, National Public Radio
