Genocide and the Courts

David Bosco e-mails this article in Foreign Policy arguing that tribunals have no deterrent effect on those committing atrocities. I'm not sure we have enough examples to say for sure, yet, but if he's right, then that's just one more reason why the international response to Darfur shouldn't get hung up on one. As Bosco writes, "It is worth remembering that the legacy of Nuremberg will be hollow if it means more trials but no fewer genocides."
