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?
