Trials and Tribulations analyzes the uneven track record of these international criminal courts with jurisdiction to try leading officials and military officers. States inside and out of these courts\' jurisdiction have both strengthened and undermined these courts, while preventing arrests of their own leaders. Yet, in expanding the scope of international criminal law and by punishing a significant number of high-profile cases, the tribunals confirm the aspirations and nascent norms of international society for justice. Their effect on deterrence and international peace and stability has been more problematic. This book analyzes how these courts are redefining and influencing what norms states must respect to preserve their reputations by mobilizing information networks from journalists, NGOs, IGOs, and states to document and publicize violations of international criminal law. However, the patchwork of selective prosecution, compliance, and norm development is fraught with double standards, hypocrisy, selective enforcement, and neo-imperial delegitimation of the subaltern. Still, tribunals have raised the profile of humanitarianism by punishing some of the most notorious atrocities. The question remains whether these procedural irregularities and the ongoing impunity of both the powerful and the powerless will undermine or limit this potential\"--Page 4 of cover.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Customary law and the ad hoc international criminal courts \/ James Larry Taulbee -- The joint criminal enterprise debate and the case of Charles Taylor : the politics of international criminal tribunal law \/ Kelly-Kate Pease -- Prosecuting recruitment of child combatants by the Special Court for Sierra Leone : precedents and problems \/ Kimberly Lanegran -- Song as a crime againist humanity : the first international prosecution a pop star \/ Susan Benesch -- Seeking justice and accountability : the dilemmas of humanitarian law and human rights NGOs \/ Mahmood Monshipouri -- Peace v.
