Chapter Summary

Transitional justice has been a rapidly growing field of policy interest and empirical study. The few key notions presented in this chapter tries to capture, in a succinct way, some of the general principles which appear to be the parameters guiding the transitional justice processes. The International Criminal Court (ICC) was established in a context, with a mandate to contribute to conflict transformation by means of criminal justice. The ICC is one of the greatest projects that the international community has attempted in order to bring about peace through justice and the rule of law. Its objective is to implement the minimum standards of humanity by way of preventing the violation of fundamental human rights and enforcing the protections offered by International Humanitarian Law. In applying international criminal law and dispensing justice, the ICC fulfils an important role in transformation processes.
