Some Kind of Justice Reviews


Diane Orentlicher's Some Kind of Justice is an impressive book. It examines, comprehensively and in much detail, the impact that the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) has had on the ground in Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina ... I am sure that it will be read for many years to come. * Marko Milanovic, European Journal of International Law *
Some Kind of Justice is a truly magisterial work. * Ambassador Wolfgang Petritsch, High Representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina (1999-2002) *
Diane Orentlicher has written the book on the Yugoslavia Tribunal. Some Kind of Justice is destined to become part of the transitional justice canon, and the point of departure for future efforts to understand the impact - and efficacy - of courts and other transitional justice processes. I deeply admire this impressive study. * David Tolbert, President, International Center for Transitional Justice (2010-2018) *
No war crimes tribunal since Nuremberg so tested the world's will to see justice done as the ICTY. Diane Orentlicher has written the definitive account, and it will stand for years to come. An invaluable contribution to the literature of human rights. * Tom Gjelten, Correspondent, NPR News, and author of Sarajevo Daily: A City and Its Newspaper Under Siege *
Diane Orentlicher has written a superbly researched and nuanced assessment of the ICTY's impact on the communities most implicated in, and affected by, the atrocities of the wars in the former Yugoslavia. From this rich study, she draws broader lessons about the promises and limitations of international criminal justice institutions for the local populations they are most meant to serve. It is essential reading for commentators and actors who are thinking about the design of such mechanisms and the role they can play in transitional justice processes. * Alex Whiting, Professor of Practice, Harvard Law School *
Some kind of Justice is an indispensable book, not just on the ICTY but on the impact (real and potential) of international courts of justice. Unusually combining legal analysis and extensive (and long term) field research, it is a book that could only come about through the exercise of a brilliant mind, attuned to social science, regional history and politics. Its intellectual rigor and sensitivity to plural (and dynamic) criteria of success offer a model for how to overcome romantic or cynical views about international justice. No one interested in that debate can afford not to ponder this book. * Pablo de Greiff, First UN Special Rapporteur for the promotion of truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-recurrence (2012-2018) *
