Summary
"Evaluates the success of the intended expressivist goals of domestic and international war crimes trials dealing with the 1991-1995 Croatian conflict. Highlights how dominant everyday narratives are and the difficulty that top-down judicial narratives can face. Focuses on the political sociology of law, rather than strictly legal ramifications. The extra-legal effects of international and domestic war crimes trials continue to puzzle researchers and practitioners. In the former Yugoslav states, the legacy of conflict and issues of transitional justice remains central in politics, society and culture. This book provides a new theoretical and methodological approach to one of these puzzles: why universal human rights norms become distorted or undermined when they reach local publics. It investigates the social and cultural contexts that transitional justice processes take place in by looking at how emotional everyday narratives can hamper the spread of norms in society. In Croatia, these narratives define how the public understands the rule of law, history, and minority rights"--Publisher's website
