Through an in-depth case study, Some Kind of Justice offers fresh insights about two questions now the subject of robust debate: What goals can we plausibly assign to international criminal tribunals? What factors determine the impact of distant courts on societies that have seen vicious violence? The book offers a timely and original account of how the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) affected local communities, and the factors that shape its changing impact over time.
