Atrocity Crimes, Atrocity Laws and Justice in Africa provides a detailed analysis of the law and practice of international criminal justice in atrocity situations within Africa. Using the framework of atrocity law and justice, it examines national, regional, and international trials for atrocity crimes, including trials before foreign courts, while paying attention to the challenges posed by extradition laws to the attainment of justice. The book also discusses quasi-criminal processes adopted by some countries for bringing perpetrators to justice. It notes the politics of and the tensions within international criminal justice, the unending challenges to the existing framework by African countries, and the possibility of the emergence of an alternative or complementary regional criminal justice system. This book will be of interest to both academics and practitioners in the areas of mass atrocity studies, and international criminal law and justice. It will be a valuable tool for students and others studying international criminal law, international human rights, international humanitarian law, and the politics of international criminal justice. Anyone interested in atrocity law and justice in Africa will find this an indispensable text.
