Trials and tribulations of international prosecution
Lanham [etc.] : Lexington Books, 2013
This chapter addresses dilemmas of securing justice and accountability, as well as protecting victims of inter/intrastate conflicts. Despite conceptual and legal differences between human rights NGOs and IHL, the latter provides a useful framework and valuable tool for the former in their mutual attempt to safeguard human rights. After examining the dilemmas of seeking justice and accountability for victims of armed conflicts, this chapter outlines a forward-looking approach toward preventing deadly conflicts and egregious human rights violations.
