Summary
It is often assumed that the independence of a criminal court is synonymous with the impartiality of judges. However, discussions around the independence of the International Criminal Court are, in most cases, about the Court as an institution and about the work of the Office of the Prosecutor. The Independence of the International Criminal Court: Between a Rock and a Hard Place focuses on understanding the different competing narratives which defend and critique the Court's 'institutional' independence and legitimacy, and particularly its relationship with Africa. Critical discourse analysis techniques are used to capture the way in which language is used to express the collective power capable of influencing the policies of the Court. 'In assessing the ICC's independence and legitimacy, Alphonse Muleefu is scrupulously even-handed in weighing the claims of the Court's supporters and critics. The book's dialogical approach enables a deep understanding of how the ICC views its role in addressing mass crimes and why the Court's critics - especially in Africa - are so concerned about its impact across the continent. This book is nuanced, thorough and essential reading for anyone trying to fathom where the ICC finds itself 17 years into its existence. 'Dr Phil Clark, SOAS University of London' The Independence of the International Criminal Court: Between A Rock and A Hard Place" provides a tremendously vivid and fascinating study of politics in action. By analysing the public speeches and written texts that mark critical moments in the court's history the book offers a desperately needed analysis of the place of politics in the life of the law. Alphonse captures beautifully various key discourses and sets them side-by-side forcing us to contend with the difficulties of the ICC's relationship with Africa and their implications for understanding law in an uneven world. He also turns us to the crude realities of that world as seen in the spoken and written word highlighting how the key challenge of twenty-first century justice analysis is not only what is done and what is said but also how those things are seen. A refreshing account of the complex dynamics of discourse. A must read. 'Prof. Kamari M. Clarke, The University of California, Los Angeles.--
