International crimes, such as genocide and crimes against humanity,
are complex and difficult to prove, so their prosecutions are
costly and time-consuming. As a consequence, international
tribunals and domestic bodies have recently made greater use of
guilty pleas, many of which have been secured through plea
bargaining. This book examines those guilty pleas and the methods
used to obtain them, presenting analyses of practices in Sierra
Leone, East Timor, Cambodia, Argentina, Bosnia, and Rwanda.
Although current plea bargaining practices may be theoretically
unsupportable and can give rise to severe victim dissatisfaction,
the author argues that the practice is justified as a means of
increasing the proportion of international offenders who can be
prosecuted. She then incorporates principles drawn from the
domestic practice of restorative justice to construct a model
guilty plea system to be used for international crimes.
