Abstract

International criminal justice is in transition. Fifteen years after the emergence of the modern institutions of international criminal justice through the creation of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), the 'idea' of international criminal justice has become normalised to an extent that few imagined possible at its inception. Experimentation with international investigation and adjudication techniques and processes during this period has also helped normalise the use of criminal justice tools in international conflict resolution interventions. Yet the system that has been 'normalised' remains a specific and contested vision of what shape international criminal justice (ICJ) can and should take, the nature of its operations and institutions, the impact it has and interests it should serve - and the direction in which it should evolve.
