Kosovo and Transitional Justice

The Pursuit of Justice After Large Scale-Conflict

«

'This book will rapidly become a standard point of reference for anyone seeking an understanding of the immense crimes of war and their mainly civilian victims during the war in Kosovo. The book highlights the international attempts to record the facts surrounding the horrific atrocities that took place, in particular also sexual violence, and to establish the responsibility of their authors—a process that has remained sadly unbalanced, patchy and incomplete to this day.'--Marc Weller, Director of the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law, University of Cambridge

'Kosovo was a highwater mark of international transitional administration of a country after war and the former Yugoslavia a highwater mark for the level of international and national prosecutions of war crimes. That makes this treasure trove of information and insights about transitional justice in Kosovo such an important book. The contributors have deep knowledge and sophistication about what kind of justice Kosovo’s victims received and the implications of this for the most central debates about the character of transitional justice. I thought I knew a bit about conflict in Kosovo, but learned so much that was new by reading this book. Those who engage with it will see more clearly how profound are the paradoxes of transitional justice.'--John Braithwaite, Australian National University

'The pursuit of justice, healing and repair after large-scale and devastating conflict is a never-ending, perpetually painful and rather frustrating journey. This book reckons unabashedly with this journey by critically analyzing the painstakingly ambivalent and complex work of ‘justice’ of both international and local judicial mechanisms and courts, but also by bringing into the picture alternative and courageous narratives in the search for justice as exemplified through grassroots and survivor-led activism and artistic engagements in Kosovo. Intellectually engaging and highly informative, this book must become required reading for all interested in transitional justice more generally and the case of the Kosovo conflict in particular.'--Brunilda Pali, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven
