The worlds first permanent international criminal tribunal for the prosecution and punishment of the worlds most serious crimes was created in 2002. In Bringing Power to Justice? legal scholars, political scientists, and political philosophers respond to fundamental questions about the future of this court and international criminal justice. For instance, will the ICC be undermined by political constraints, given the opposition of major powers, including the United States?

What are the implications of holding heads of state responsible for international crimes? Are trials the best response to state crime or would other devices (such as truth commissions) be more suitable? Is retributive justice an appropriate response? The contributors offer indispensable and thoughtful assessment of the future of international criminal justice. Contributors include Dapo Akande (Oxford), Antonio Franceschet (Acadia), Tracy Isaacs (Western Ontario), Catherine Lu (McGill), Darryl Robinson (The International Criminal Court), Michael P.

Scharf (Case Western Reserve School of Law), Alex Tuckness (Iowa State), and David Wippman (Cornell).
