In the context of most discussions around the potential of prosecutions to contribute to strengthening compliance with international humanitarian law, there is a common focus on the international level. This paper argues that national trials of a state’s own nationals can and should play a more important role in increasing compliance with international humanitarian law, but that common deceptive perceptions and a marked reluctance to bring war crimes charges against one’s own nationals have obstructed the realisation of the full potential of such proceedings.
