Abstract

How do defence lawyers present international criminal law? In two documentaries – The Trial and War Don Don – defence lawyers critique international criminal law, and its inability to examine interactions between perpetration and victimhood or the structural causes of conflict, its inability to determine ‘truth’, and its impetus towards conviction.
