About the Authors
  • The International Criminal Court emerged in the early twenty-first century as an ambitious and permanent institution with a mandate to address mass atrocity crimes such as genocide and crimes against humanity. Although designed to exercise jurisdiction only in instances where states do not pursue these crimes themselves (and are unwilling or unable to do so), the Court's interventions, particularly in African states, have raised questions about the social value of its work and its political dimensions and effects. Bringing together scholars and practitioners who specialise on the ICC, this collection offers a diverse account of its interventions: from investigations to trials and from the Court's Hague-based centre to the networks of actors who sustain its activities. Exploring connections with transitional justice and international relations, and drawing upon critical insights from the interpretive social sciences, it offers a novel perspective on the ICC's work. This title is also available as Open Access.

    • Critical analysis of the ICC's work will appeal to readers who are interested in the social and political aspects of international criminal law
    • Connects international criminal law with transitional justice, global governance and international relations debates
    • Brings together scholars and practitioners from multiple fields in order to provide diverse perspectives of a contested international legal institution
    • This book is also available as Open Access
