Globalizing Transitional Justice

Ruti G. Teitel

Oxford University Press

This chapter, originally a contribution to a symposium on the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at Columbia University, explores the evolving and arguably tightening relationship between transitional justice and international criminal law. It discusses how jurisdiction is established over those who have committed crimes against humanity, including the institution of the International Criminal Court following specific tribunals such as those for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. It examines how particular trials, beginning with Nuremberg, have acquired a universal significance, shaping the political imagination of justice in times of transition, including the trial of Klaus Barbie and Augusto Pinochet.

Keywords:   crimes against humanity, International Criminal Court, international criminal law, jurisdiction, Klaus Barbie, Nuremberg, Rwanda, transitional justice
