The volum gives a close look at the trial of former Chadian president, Hissene Habré, who was prosecuted for crimes against humanity in 2016 by an Hybrid (intl/national) tribunal in Senegal.
The book presents the trial and its impact using a novel structure of first-person accounts from 26 direct actors, including politicians, judges, lawyers, victims, donors, clerks and others (Part I), accompanied by academic analysis from leading experts on international criminal justice (Part II). Combined, these views present unique insights into the construction and work of the Extraordinary African Chambers; the book also proposes an innovative method of research on courts.
The book’s preface is written by Denis Mukwege, 2018 Nobel Peace Prize Co-recipient.
