Esteemed international relations scholar Kathryn Sikkink offers a landmark argument for human rights prosecutions as a powerful political tool. She shows how, in just three decades, state leaders in Latin America, Europe, and Africa have lost their immunity from any accountability for their human rights violations, becoming the subjects of highly publicized trials resulting in severe consequences. This shift is affecting the behavior of political leaders worldwide and may change the face of global politics as we know it.

Sikkink presents her groundbreaking quantitative research to analyze the effects this "justice cascade" has had on democracy, conflict, and repression and reveals what political and social conditions are and aren't required for human rights trials to be effective. Engaging, analytical, and prescient, The Justice Cascade is a perfect book for international relations and human rights courses.

This powerful book gives hope for the future of human rights." -- Gary Bass, Professor of Politics and International Affairs, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University
"This marvelous book combines lucid reason with deep passion. Cascading through the nooks and crannies of international life, justice's call is now heard loud and clear by those in power. The Justice Cascade will become an instantaneous classic that all students of international politics will read and refer to for years to come." -- Peter J. Katzenstein, Walter S. Carpenter, Jr. Professor of International Studies, Cornell University
"The Justice Cascade is an immensely engaging account of a scholar's own personal journey and of how to combine moral passion with systematic social scientific investigation." -- Robert O. Keohane, Professor of International Affairs, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University
