The Khmer Rouge Trials in Context259Skickas inom 7-10 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.When a tribunal was formed in 2006 to address the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge, many expected the Cambodian model for victim empowerment to open a new path for international judiciary initiatives. However, the local reality of the justice intervention has been more complicated. Rather than joining the success-or-failure debate about the court, this volume pays special attention to how the trials are perceived locally. Inclinations in institutional design, favored or excluded political agendas, mismatched values between experts and locals, and unexpected local meaning-making all flow into the current context in Cambodia. Through critical analysis by authors with on-the-ground experience, this collection--the first to address the tribunal through a sociological framework--provides insight into the tension between the global justice regime and local societal context.
