Can International Tribunals Deliver Justice?

John Laughland and Philippe Sands QC discuss chaired by writer and columnist Simon Jenkins


The trial of war criminals and dictators representsone of the key outcomes of humanitarian intervention or 'regime change'. Slobodn Milosevic and Saddam Hussein are the most recent in a long line or political leaders to have been brought before courts of law. But what kind of justice is this, and is it distinguishable from revenge? Would Robert Mugabe still be in power if the threat of a war crimes trial was not present?
