Jessica Bramnick CPSP118N Section 0101 2.24.11 Adam Smith Lecture Adam Smith is an international lawyer from Washington, D.C., who we were lucky enough to hear speak this past Tuesday. Smith is very experienced with both the success and problems with international justice and the International Criminal Courts (ICC). He has spoken to victims of genocide and war crimes and has gotten a first look at the failures of international courts to bring criminals to justice. Smith has issues with the ICC’s are the lack of equality and the inability for evidence to be examined by both sides. This issue definitely comes up in our readings, especially when it comes to the Tutsis and Hutu. While the Ustasha were the true persecutors, the Serbs were the group punished in Croatia. Smith argues that oftentimes both sides need to be punished, and there is no time limit on punishing war crimes. Even though the Ustasha committed crimes during World War II, they still deserve pay for their deeds 60 years later.
