Understanding international criminal law from a users’ perspective: pluralism due to contestation, integration through collaboration

Onderzoeksoutput: Chapterpeer review

Samenvatting

This contribution aims to better understand how and why International Criminal Law (ICL) is pluralistic and how this pluralism is at least partly the result of the contesting actions, interests and backgrounds of the various ICL users and the context in which they operate. The hypothesis is that the adoption of a users’ perspective helps to understand ICL pluralism. After a discussion of the various dimensions of pluralism in ICL, this chapter identifies the most important ICL users. Nevertheless, it will also be demonstrated, through the example of the case against the former Chadian dictator Hissène Habré, that pluralism can be overcome, as ICL is also often a collaborative ingenious effort of various users which are able to align their interests in the pursuit international criminal justice
