This unique collection of essays by world leaders and experts tackles substantive topics, such as the right to truth, torture, immunity and women’s rights, in light of current and past events, challenging basic assumptions and bringing fresh thoughts to debates that are at the core of the world’s agenda. The backbone of each contribution is the interaction between justice and peace, between human rights and conflict, and between law and politics, in the international sphere or domestic context.
