Many thanks to Dr. Genevieve Bates, Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of British Columbia and postdoctoral fellow with the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University, for presenting her research on the influence that international tribunals like the ICC have in peace negotiations and holding governments accountable in transitional contexts. Drawing on the content of global peace agreements, Dr. Bates argues that the threat of facing justice internationally incentivizes powerful actors to formally commit to holding domestic trials. We are excited to read her upcoming book project on this subject once it is in print!
