Do War Crime Trials Do More Harm Than Good?


Download: Audio

Speaker(s): Professor Richard Goldstone and Dr Leslie Vinjamuri

Recorded on 3 May 2007 in Old Theatre, Old Building.

Intuitively all defenders of human rights are in favour of war crime trials. But can the idea of an international code of criminal law survive the realpolitik of states trading insults over who has been most complicit? Will war crimes become as familiar as ordinary criminal trials are today, or is it merely a passing liberal fad?
