As Guest Editor of the International Journal of Criminology & Sociology, I am pleased to invite you to contribute a research manuscript or review article in the special issue on“The Justice of International and Hybrid Criminal Tribunals”.

We are receiving papers for the forthcoming special issue. Please send title and a one page abstract of your proposed manuscript by email as soon as possible. Please refer to the Guidelines for Authors for detailed information about submitting your paper at the Online Manuscript Submission and Tracking System website or alternatively, you may submit your manuscript via email at . This invitation is open to your colleagues / other researchers working in this area thus feel free to forward this invitation to them.

About the special issue:

The establishment of International Criminal Tribunals (including the ICTY, ICTR, and the ICC), and hybrid or internationalized tribunals (including the SCSL, ECCC, East Timor, Kosovo Panels and the STL) has been portrayed as a great achievement within international law. These tribunals are characterized as institutions aimed at ending impunity and promoting peace and reconciliation by seeking to prevent and deter war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide, and terrorism.

However, significant questions regarding the structure, procedures, and outcomes of these tribunals remain unanswered: Are international and hybrid tribunals fair? Have international and hybrid tribunals improved the lives of those directly affected by the crimes? To what extent do these tribunals ensure due process or transparency? How can the support and protection of witnesses and evidence be improved and enhanced? What impact have these tribunals had in relation to the societies which experienced violations? Have they contributed to the healing and reconciliation of post-conflict societies? Have they prevented or deterred international crimes from being committed? Do international and hybrid courts promote the preservation of history, the right to the truth, or restoration of peace? Or are they primarily symbolic markers of shared values? How does geographic/national background affect output? And what about victims of crimes not prosecuted; what impact do the tribunals have upon them?

This special issue’s objective is to assess the justice of international and hybrid tribunals and pursue identification of lessons learned from comparative studies of the tribunals: best practices that may be applied by other international and hybrid tribunals. The special issue also aims to study potential transitional justice and the contribution of international and hybrid tribunals to improving local justice systems.
