Abstract

JURIST Guest Columnist Charles Jalloh of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law says that while having the International Criminal Court take up cases arising out of the violence that followed Kenya's 2007 elections could be convenient for local politicians seeking to evade responsibility for stoking ethnic hatreds and fomenting violence for personal gain, international prosecutions may have limited impact in healing the raw wounds of the currently divided nation....

Keywords: Kenya, ICC, International Criminal Cout, war crimes, crimes against humanity, enforcement, international criminal justice, transitional justice
