Abstract

After sketching a normative account of domestic criminal trials as a process of calling an alleged wrongdoer to public account, I discuss the significant role that trials can play (independently of the substantive punishments that might or might not follow them) in the contexts of transitional justice and of international criminal justice.

Keywords: trials, transitional justice, international criminal law
