Tor Krever PhotoIGLP Alum, Tor Krever, would like to share his  article, “Dispensing Global Justice“, published in “New Left Review”.

The article, ‘Dispensing Global Justice’, considers the origins and evolution of the International Criminal Court, examining the context of the court’s establishment, the motives of the states that set it up and the record of its operations to date. Tracing the ICC’s geopolitical tacking through a decade of imperial warfare, it argues that the court’s selective and highly politicized interventions have operated to reproduce one-sided narratives of complex conflicts, demonizing some perpetrators while shielding, and legitimating, imperial powers: less a tool of international justice than the judicial concomitant to Western intervention.
