Jurisdiction, Politics, and Truth-Making: International Courts and the Formation of Translocal Legal Cultures

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter suggests that the authority framework allows one to see resonances across seemingly disparate spaces and thus to participate in a shared project for understanding important international institutions. At the same time, by focusing on degrees of authority, one can also speak to the specificities of people’s experiences and encounters with justice. In this spirit of interdisciplinary and comparative methods, the chapter takes the categories of analysis that emerge from the authority framework and puts them into conversation with some key categories in legal anthropology. In so doing, it offers some points of connectivity and conversation across different, but overlapping, disciplinary questions.
