The End of Impunity

David John Scheffer, LL.M., Professor of Law; Ambassador at Large, War Crimes Issues; Author, All the Missing Souls: A Personal History of the War Crimes Tribunals

The masterminds of atrocity crimes in modern times are facing fewer choices as war crimes tribunals and outraged citizens seek both justice and political upheaval. Scheffer, America’s first Ambassador at Large for War Crimes Issues and author of an inside look at war crimes tribunals, discusses atrocity crimes past, present and future and how the fate of indicted leaders will be an international trial or vengeful retribution. He says that the days of impunity are ending in the 21st century.
