In the last two decades there has been a meteoric rise of international criminal tribunals and courts, and also a strengthening chorus of critics against them. Today it is hard to find strong defenders of international criminal tribunals and courts. This book attempts such a defense against an array of critics. It offers a nuanced defense, accepting many criticisms but arguing that the idea of international criminal tribunals can be defended as providing the fairest way to deal with mass atrocity crimes in a global arena. Fairness and moral legitimacy will be at the heart of this defense. The authors take up the economic and political arguments that have been powerfully expressed, as well as arguments about sovereignty, punishment, responsibility, and evidence; but in the end they show that these arguments do not defeat the idea of international criminal courts and tribunals.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Since the field's rebirth two decades ago in The Hague, the legal analysis of international criminal justice has exploded. But with this powerful and probing intervention, May and Fyfe demonstrate that it is philosophical concepts that best legitimate and critique the current practice of international tribunals. With this compelling and urgent book, a true philosophy of international criminal law has now arrived.' Jens David Ohlin, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of Law, Cornell Law School
'The authors' analysis of the various critiques yields both normative arguments about the value of international criminal tribunals and suggestions about how the institutions can be improved. In advancing their normative claims and supporting their prescriptive suggestions, the authors draw on a deep well of philosophical and theoretical concepts, including legitimacy, fairness, effectiveness, and efficiency. The result is a book that not only canvases and addresses the broad array of critiques leveled at international criminal tribunals but adds significantly to the rather scant literature on the philosophical justifications for international criminal justice.' Margaret M. deGuzman, Ethics & International Affairs
