International criminal justice, the Gotovina judgment and the making of refugees

Byrne, Rosemary and Noll, Gregor LU (2013) In Protecting the Rights of Others. Festskrift til Jens Vedsted-Hansen p.467-486
Abstract
In this contribution, we reflect on the particular function of international criminal law to prevent refugee crises of the type that provided a major trigger for the debate on military and legal interventionism in the 1990s. Based on the dichotomy of formal and substantive justice, we analyze the achievements of International Criminal Tribunals and look into the Gotovina judgment in particular. We conclude that an insistence on formal models of justice cannot compensate for the shortfalls in legitimacy of international criminal tribunals.
