For the first time in legal history, an indictment was filed against an acting head of state, Slobodan Milosevic, for crimes that Milosevic allegedly committed while he was in office. Seeking to change the concept of ethnic cleansing from a rationalizing euphemism to an incriminating metaphor, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) set precedents and expanded the boundaries of international criminal and humanitarian law. In Reclaiming Justice, Sanja Kutnjak Ivkovich and John Hagan add to prior literature about the ICTY by providing a comprehensive view of how people from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, and Serbia view and evaluate the ICTY. Kutnjak Ivkovich and Hagan ask crucial questions about international justice in a systematic and comprehensive manner, looking into the ICTY's legality and judicial independence, as well as specific issues of substantive and procedural justice and collective and individual responsibility. Kutnjak Ivkovich and Hagan provide an in-depth analysis of perceptions about the ICTY, the subsequent work of its local courts, and decisions reached by the local courts. They also examine the relationship between the views of the ICTY and ethnicity, a particularly relevant notion because the war was fought largely along ethnic lines.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Required reading for anyone interested in the horrific crimes against humanity committed in the Former Yugoslavia, and the international response to it, namely the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. The authors analysis of the local response ? based on survey data and their social science wisdom ? are relevant for other contexts. This is a remarkable contribution to understanding how a society unravels and how the international community responds. * Judith Blau, Professor of Sociology, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill *
Renowned and brilliant authors, Sanja Kutnjak Ivkovich and John Hagan, provide a unique view into the hearts and minds of those who ultimately matter in the arena of international criminal justice: the communities of victims and perpetrators as they emerge from ethnic conflict. They bring to life the ambiguous voices of victimhood and guilt embedded in the landscapes of defense and defeat, and overshadowed by politics. This book is indispensable reading for all who care deeply about the future of international criminal justice. * Susanne Karstedt, Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Centre for Criminal Justice Studies, University of Leeds, School of Law *
In their superb study of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, Kutnjak Ivkovich and Hagan probe the role trials and international criminal tribunals play in communities torn asunder by war and ethnic violence. Using empirical data collected over many years, they demonstrate how people and entire communities can interpret a tribunal's decisions, procedures, and even its very existence, in a variety of ways. iReclaiming Justicer is essential reading for all those interested in international law and transitional justice. * Eric Stover, Human Rights Center, University of California, Berkeley *
