Political Authority in Sites of Accountability

Negotiation and Delegation

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearch

Abstract

Peace processes are sites of accountability in two ways: they apply norms of international criminal justice and, surprisingly perhaps, they create norms of international criminal justice. The application can be successful if it is internationally and locally legitimated. To that end, the paper examined the International Criminal Court's (de-)legitimation of peace agreements in Uganda and Colombia. As crafters of justice norms, the paper demonstrates that the Ugandan peace process enabled and helped the ICC in developing particular interpretations of its mandate, as did the Havana process.
