Power in International Criminal Justice: Towards a Sociology of International Ju
Power in International Criminal Justice: Towards a Sociology of International Justice Florence, 28-29 October 2017 Call for papers. International criminal justice has been subjected to growing criticism. This trend is not only a reaction to the performance of international criminal justice actors. It also reflects a sense that the discipline has come of age after two decades of comprehensive international practice. The field is now sufficiently mature – the institutions have had adequate time to grow into their mandates and roles – for scholars to forge a proper sub-discipline of sociology of international criminal justice where the behaviour of relevant institutions and other actors is analysed. Sociology of law has made indispensable contributions to our understanding of the administration of justice, law-making processes, and the relationship between law, justice and power in several domestic legal systems. Such knowledge-generation can increase acceptance of a legal system’s role, expose its weaknesses, and drive improvement. A responsible discourse invites greater transparency that can, in turn, foster higher standards of integrity in international criminal jurisdictions, enhance quality in their recruitment, and increase institutional legitimacy. It may also generate information of significance for non-States Parties continuing to consider their position outside the Statute of the International Criminal Court. The new research project ‘Power in International Criminal Justice: Towards a Sociology of International Justice’ will focus on the relationship between power and autonomy in international criminal justice. Power plays a role because sovereign States and non-governmental organisations are the main enabling stakeholders of international criminal jurisdictions, and because human beings fill the institutions’ leading positions. The justice dispensed by the jurisdictions cannot be independent, impartial and otherwise fair without sufficient autonomy. The project will analyse the design and behaviour of institutions of international criminal justice and key actors in their orbit, by that identifying patterns in the arrangement of power, its distribution and reproduction, other relationships of power, actors’ capacity and intent to use their power, and possible abuse of power. Paper proposals (500 words) should be e-mailed with a summary biography to calls@cilrap.org by 30 June 2017 (suitable proposals may be confirmed as soon as they come in). Selected authors will be invited to an international seminar in Florence on 28-29 October 2017 (travel and accommodation will be covered). Papers may be co-authored by multiple individuals. Draft papers should be submitted by 25 October 2017; final papers by 29 January 2018. An anthology of selected papers will be published before 1 July 2018.
