“All the Missing Souls: A Personal History of the War Crimes Tribunals”
January 12, 2012
A talk by David Scheffer, Director of Center for International Human Rights at Northwestern University.
As senior adviser to Madeleine Albright and then as President Clinton's ambassador-at-large for war crimes issues, David Scheffer was at the forefront of the efforts that led to criminal tribunals for the Balkans, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, and Cambodia, and that resulted in the creation of the permanent International Criminal Court. All the Missing Souls: A Personal History of the War Crimes Tribunals is Scheffer's gripping insider's account of the international gamble to prosecute those responsible for genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity, and to redress some of the bloodiest human rights atrocities in our time.
David John Scheffer currently teaches at the Northwestern University School of Law, where he directs the Center for International Human Rights.
