Description

The masterminds of atrocity crimes in modern times are facing fewer choices as war crimes tribunals and outraged citizens seek both justice and political upheaval. David Scheffer, America’s first Ambassador at Large for War Crimes Issues and author of All the Missing Souls: A Personal History of the War Crimes Tribunals, discusses atrocity crimes past, present, and future and how the fate of indicted leaders will be an international trial or vengeful retribution. The choice is no longer peace or justice to bring genocide or crimes against humanity to an end. The days of impunity are ending in the 21st century.
