About the book:
“John Ciorciari and Anne Heindel have written the definitive study of a highly controversial experiment in accountability for human rights atrocities. Their superb research and analysis, borne of first-hand experience, identifies the structural flaws, political conflicts, and personal rivalries that have plagued the Khmer Rouge tribunal since its inception. They weave their appraisal into a set of compelling recommendations for those contemplating future mixed domestic-international courts. With such tribunals still a serious option for states emerging from civil conflict, this study makes a profound contribution to the scholarship and policy debates within fields ranging from international criminal justice to comparative politics.”
—Steven R. Ratner, University of Michigan Law School and member of the UN Secretary-General’s Group of Experts for Cambodia
