Doing Justice to Truth in International Criminal Courts and Tribunals

With the growing institutionalization of the field of international criminal justice in the second-half of the twentieth century, truth in the aftermath of situations of mass atrocity has become increasingly judicialized.

This symposium convened by Jakob v. H. Holtermann and former iCourts-visiter Barrie Sander brings together scholars from a diversity of disciplinary backgrounds to reflect on the truth-telling function of international criminal courts and tribunals (ICTs). The symposium traverses a range of questions including how the truths that emerge from ICTs should be judged, how they relate to other kinds of truth, and which perspectives and criteria should be relied upon to evaluate such truths in practice.
