This chapter discusses the development of international criminal law and institutions, international criminal courts and tribunals, and international criminal justice in national courts. It argues that these developments are no cause for celebration: they reflect repeated failures to prevent serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law. The deterrent effect of international prosecutions is unclear, and probably always will be. Moreover, international criminal justice represents only one possible response to atrocities.
