Oxford scholarship online.
By some accounts, the trial and conviction of Hissène Habré is the most significant achievement global criminal justice has enjoyed in the past decade. Simply creating a court and commencing a trial against a deposed head of state was an extraordinary success. The ad hoc tribunal set up in Senegal exceeded expectations, working on time, within budget, with no murdered witnesses or self-dealing officials. This achievement is particularly meaningful in the current climate, where we are witnessing a 'backlash' against international criminal justice. This book presents the Habré trial and its impact using a novel structure of first person accounts and academic analysis, presenting both local and international perspectives through distinct but inter-locking parts. It offers empirical source material followed by expert analysis.
