Overview The long-running debate about whether seeking justice for grave international crimes interferes with prospects for peace has intensified as the possibility of national leaders being brought to trial for human rights violations becomes more likely.
That the ICC operates while armed conflicts are ongoing fuels the justice and peace debate. With the functioning of international criminal courts, national tribunals, and, increasingly, trials abroad, the context of amnesty discussions is already very different from several years ago.
It is now generally recognized that international law obligates countries to prosecute genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes. International tribunals and national courts applying universal jurisdiction are likely to reject de jure amnesties for the most serious human rights abuses.
The expectations of victims for justice have changed in this evolving context. Those negotiating peace have tended to view the possibility of prosecution as a dangerous and unfortunate obstacle to their work. Some fear that merely raising the specter of prosecution will bring an end to fragile peace talks.
Facing understandable pressure to resolve an armed conflict, negotiators and others often feel pressed to push justice to one side. Indeed, to get parties to the table, blanket amnesties have often in the past been offered to those responsible for horrific human rights abuses. Supporters of amnesties argue that those bearing the greatest responsibility for atrocities have no interest in laying down their arms unless they believe that they will not face criminal charges.
Often these decisions are made almost literally at gunpoint by people desperate to end years of violence and upheaval.
Others have argued that while justice is important, it should take a back seat to peace. At this sensitive time, to lay charges against senior government officials, and to criminalise the entire government, will derail attempts to pull Sudan from the brink.
In the short-term, it is easy to understand the temptation to forego justice in an effort to end armed conflict. However, Human Rights Watch research over the past 20 years in many different countries only some of which are described in this report has demonstrated that a decision to ignore atrocities and to reinforce a culture of impunity may carry a high price.
While there are undoubtedly many factors that influence the resumption of armed conflict, and we do not assert that impunity is the sole causal factor, Human Rights Watch research shows that the impact of justice is too often undervalued when weighing objectives in resolving a conflict.
In addition, in practice the anticipated negative consequences of pressing for accountability often do not come to pass. Insisting on justice, for example, does not necessarily mean an end to peace talks or result in renewed instability as some predict.
Peace agreements and ceasefires in the Democratic Republic of Congo DRC did not include amnesty provisions for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide despite the fear of many that not granting total amnesty would mean the collapse of negotiations. Only days after the warrant for Milosevic was announced, a peace agreement was reached.
Even years after a period of upheaval, some question the wisdom of bringing justice to those responsible for abuses for fear of the consequences.
