Abstract

It has been 20 years since the creation of the International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. The Special Court for Sierra Leone was created 10 years ago. The International Criminal Court celebrated its 10-year anniversary last year. Over these two decades, the institutions of international criminal justice (ICJ) have assumed a central place in discussions and actions around what should be done in the wake of atrocities, whether committed as part of a repressive regime or an armed conflict. This special issue considers the key, and often fraught, relationship between transitional justice (TJ) and ICJ.

Keywords: transitional justice, international criminal justice, international criminal law, post-conflict justice
