Professor Damaska contends that without
an understanding of the particular goals and contexts
of international criminal adjudication, it is difficult
to assess the adequacy of the substantive and procedural
law used by international criminal courts.

judges have set for themselves in international criminal
courts and show that they are often, in his view, conflicting.
He will explain what consequences this has for international
His proposed solution is to abandon some
of these ambitious goals and to modify others in order
to make adjudication in these courts effective.
