Today's international war crimes tribunals lack police powers, and therefore must prod and persuade defiant states to co-operate in the arrest and prosecution of their own political and military leaders. Victor Peskin's comparative study traces the development of the capacity to build the political authority necessary to exact compliance from states implicated in war crimes and genocide in the cases of the International War Crimes Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. Drawing on 300 in-depth interviews with tribunal officials, Balkan and Rwandan politicians, and Western diplomats, Peskin uncovers the politicized, protracted, and largely behind-the-scenes tribunal-state struggle over co-operation.

This book explores the promises and limitations of holding individuals accountable for violations of international human rights and humanitarian law. It analyses the principal crimes under international law, such as genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes, and appraises both prosecutorial and other key mechanisms developed to bring individuals to justice. After applying their conclusions in a detailed case study, the authors offer a series of compelling conclusions on the prospects for accountability. This fully updated new edition contains expanded coverage of national trials under universal jurisdiction, international criminal tribunals including the International Criminal Court, new hybrid tribunals in Cambodia and elsewhere, truth commissions, and lustration. It also explores individual accountability for terrorist acts and for abuses committed in the name of counter-terrorism policy.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

When genocidal violence gripped Rwanda in 1994, the international community recoiled, hastily withdrawing its peacekeepers. Late that year, in an effort to redeem itself, the United Nations Security Council created the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda to seek accountability for some of the worst atrocities since World War II: the genocide suffered by the Tutsi and crimes against humanity suffered by the Hutu. But faced with competing claims, the prosecution focused exclusively on the crimes of Hutu extremists. No charges would be brought against the Tutsi-led Rwandan Patriotic Front, which ultimately won control of the country. The UN, as if racked by guilt for its past inaction, gave in to pressure by Rwanda's new leadership. With the Hutu effectively silenced, and the RPF constantly reminding the international community of its failure to protect the Tutsi during the war, the Tribunal pursued an unusual form of one-sided justice, born out of contrition. Fascinated by the Tribunal's rich complexities, journalist Thierry Cruvellier came back day after day to watch the proceedings, spending more time there than any other outside observer. Gradually he gained the confidence of the victims, defendants, lawyers, and judges. Drawing on interviews with these protagonists and his close observations of their interactions, Cruvellier takes readers inside the courtroom to witness the motivations, mechanisms, and manipulations of justice as it unfolded on the stage of high-stakes, global politics. It is this ground-level view that makes his account so valuable—and so absorbing. A must-read for those who want to understand the dynamics of international criminal tribunals, Court of Remorse reveals both the possibilities and the challenges of prosecuting human rights violations.

This volume examines how European institutions, the European Union in particular through its policy of conditionality, have shaped the post-conflict reconstruction of the Western Balkans. From state-building to democratization and environmental policies, this book explores whether and in what ways the EU has been successful in consolidating states and democracy in the Balkans. In addition to requiring countries to be ready to join the European Union, the EU has also set new conditions in an effort to become the prime international organization involved in stabilizing the Western Balkans after the wars of the 1990s. Its record has been mixed: the conditions of the EU have often been haphazard and were frequently not followed through. In addition, enlargement towards the Western Balkans has been slow and marred by open questions over the stability of some countries in the region. This volume assesses the EU's struggle to transform the societies through conditionality and whether the offer of EU membership is enough to build stable democracies. This book was published as a special issue of Europe-Asia Studies.

During the transition to democracy, states have used various mechanisms to address previous human rights abuses including domestic trials, truth and reconciliation commissions and internationalized tribunals. This volume analyzes the transitional justice choices made by four countries: Argentina, Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH), Sierra Leone and East Timor. For each country, there is a chapter which provides a historical overview concerning the causes of the conflict and two subsequent chapters which highlight a different method of transitional justice implemented. The volume highlights the opportunities and the constraints faced by states and the international community to provide accountability for human rights violations.

Spiegel der Stadt ist ein Roman modernster Machart und die junge Schriftstellerin Elif Shafak versteht es ausgezeichnet, den heutigen Leser, trotz eines ernsthaften Themas, spannend zu unterhalten. Die Geschichte des historischen Romans führt über ganz Europa, beginnt im Spanien der Inquisition in der ersten Hälfte des 17. Jahrhunderts und spannt sich über Italien bis zum Osmanischen Reich. Die jüdischstämmige Familie Pereira gerät dabei in die Fänge der Inquisition und muss um ihr Leben und um ihre Existenz bangen. Neid ist unmittelbarer Auslöser der Verfolgung der Pereiras, doch dient eine verbotene Liebe nur als Alibi für die nächtliche Verhaftung und das erbarmungslose Durchgreifen der Inquisitoren. Vor der Katastrophe, dem Verbrennen auf dem Scheiterhaufen, entkommen die Pereiras um eine Haaresbreite. Zwei Mitgliedern der Familie gelingt unverhofft die Flucht nach Istanbul, das zu dieser Zeit Rettungsinsel für Tausende von Sepharden (jüdische Flüchtlinge aus Spanien und Portugal) ist und wo sie eine neue Heimat erwartet. Im Vordergrund des Romans stehen große Gefühle, insbesondere die leidenschaftliche Liebe zwischen Isabel und Miguel, gerade sie rücken die historische Realität in fassbare, spürbare menschliche Nähe. Die großen Gefühle lassen aber genügend Raum für einen realistischen Ausblick auf manche vergessenen oder vielleicht auch verschwiegenen Dimensionen einer dunklen Phase der europäischen Geschichte. Aktualität gewinnt der Roman durch die Thematisierung des Nebeneinanders der drei Weltreligionen Judentum, Christentum und Islam. Diese Religionen blicken durchaus auf eine Vergangenheit mit anderen Vorzeichen, als uns in jüngster Zeit Politik und Medien nahe legen wollen, zurück. Elif Shafak rückt in diesem Roman auch das von vielen Europäern und US-Amerikanern heute noch kultivierte exotische Viorstellung des "Orients" zurecht und karikiert dabei dezent und gelungen berühmte Schriftstellerkollegen aus der Türkei.
