Abstract

This short paper, published as part of the proceedings of the 100th Annual Meeting of the American Society of International Law, essays the role of an abusive public face of law in mass atrocities and provides a prologue for An Excuse-Centered Approach to Transitional Justice, 74 Ford. L. Rev. 2621 (2006). In particular, this paper argues against the view of transitional justice as ordinary justice advanced by Eric Posner and Adrian Vermeule, among others.

Keywords: International Law, Transitional Justice, Legal Theory
