Product description

This collection discusses appropriate methodologies for comparative research and applies this to the issue of trial transformation in the context of achieving justice in post-conflict societies. In developing arguments in relation to these problems, the authors use international sentencing and the question of victims' interests and expectations as a focus. The conclusions reached are wide-ranging and haighly significant in challenging existing conceptions for appreciating and giving effect to the justice demands of victims of war and social conflict. The themes developed demonstrate clearly how comparative contextual analysis facilitates our understanding of the legal and social contexts of international punishment and how this understanding can provide the basis for expanding the role of restorative international criminal justice within the context of international criminal trials.

Review quote

'...a really practical guide for those who dig into contemporary issues and problematic aspects of the system of ICJ and transitional justice...The scholarly and practical value of the volume for lawyers, sociologists, practitioners and all those who would like to explore the boundaries of ICJ, is thereby reinforced by its timely proposals, critical analysis and comprehensive practical approaches.' Criminal Law Forum
