Symposium: Doing Justice to Truth in International Criminal Courts and Tribunals

July 11, 2017 - 9:53am

"With the growing institutionalization of the field of international criminal justice in the second-half of the twentieth century, truth in the aftermath of situations of mass atrocity has become increasingly judicialized. This symposium brings together scholars from a diversity of disciplinary backgrounds to reflect on the truth-telling function of international criminal courts and tribunals (ICTs). The symposium traverses a range of questions including how the truths that emerge from ICTs should be judged, how they relate to other kinds of truth, and which perspectives and criteria should be relied upon to evaluate such truths in practice."
