First published in 2000, this volume is an examination of the issues of reconciliation after civil wars and the role international war crimes tribunals play in facilitating that reconciliation, apart from enforcing justice against perpetrators of war crimes. It argues that a war crime tribunal is partial and operates with no regard for the policy purpose of reconciliation, is likely to install all opposites of confidence and security in regions infested by civil warfare, and that their results will thus be counterproductive and will result in further loss of life and destruction.
