The Founders : Four Pioneering Individuals Who Launched the First Modern-Era International Criminal Tribunals, Paperback Book


The Balkan Wars, the Rwanda genocide, and the crimes against humanity in Cambodia and Sierra Leone spurred the creation of international criminal tribunals to bring the perpetrators of unimaginable atrocities to justice.

When Richard Goldstone, David Crane, Robert Petit, and Luis Moreno-Ocampo received the call - each set out on a unique quest to build an international criminal tribunal and launch its first prosecutions.

Never before have the founding International Prosecutors told the behind-the-scenes stories of their historic journey.

With no blueprint and little precedent, each was a path-breaker.

This book contains the first-hand accounts of the challenges they faced, the obstacles they overcame, and the successes they achieved in obtaining justice for millions of victims.
