The Contribution of International Judicial Processes to Peacebuilding

Strategies of Peace

Robert C. Johansen

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the complex interplay between international judicial processes and peace. Johansen engages the debate on international judicial activism, evaluating specific cases, especially the International Criminal Court’s indictment of leaders of the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda. Judicial proceedings have complex consequences for a wide range of conflict issues, including negotiating ceasefires, deterring future crimes, and prospects for post-conflict reconciliation. The author proposes guidelines for employing judicial processes to promote an end to conflict, based on a utilitarian ethic that gives priority to saving as many lives as possible. The guidelines consider how to advance peace and justice not only through judicial proceedings, but also when judicial proceedings are suspended.

Keywords:   International Criminal Court (ICC), genocide, LRA, northern Uganda, post-conflict reconciliation, peace processes, justice versus peace
