"Comment le Cambodge, ce petit pays longtemps synonyme de beauté et de douceur, est-il devenu le théâtre de massacres d'une ampleur rarement atteinte dans la région et l'instrument des ambitions rivales des puissances voisines et lointaines ? La réponse passe par l'observation des Cambodgiens, de leur passé, de leurs comportements, de leurs institutions. Dans ce domaine, les questions ne manquent pas. Pourquoi l'aspiration à la démocratie, manifestée en 1946 et lors de chaque élection depuis 1993 par des majorités écrasantes, ne parvient-elle pas à se traduire en pratiques et en institutions démocratiques ? Comment édifier un État où la loi s'applique indifféremment à tous alors que la société est foncièrement clanique et clientéliste ? Comment faire fonctionner un système judiciaire indépendant quand la pratique sociale garantit l'impunité en fonction de l'appartenance à une famille ou un parti ? La paix, la liberté et la justice peuvent-elles s'imposer dans un système social fondé sur les privilèges de l'argent ou de la naissance ? Comment construire un État moderne alors que sa base nationale fait défaut ?"--Page 4 of cover.

  • Forging a hybrid court : "A mountain never has two tigers"
  • Pairing the court's national and international features
  • Serving two masters : dual administration, oversight, and funding
  • Case 001 : convicting an infamous Khmer Rouge torture chief, "You cannot cover an elephant with a rice basket"
  • Case 002 : the centerpiece case against senior leaders, "Cutting the head to fit the hat?"
  • Cases 003 & 004 : the politics of personal jurisdiction, "No gain in keeping, no loss in weeding out"
  • A historic first : recognizing victims as case parties
  • Connecting to Cambodians : outreach and legacy.
Over three decades after the fall of the Pol Pot regime, the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC)-a UN-backed tribunal fusing Cambodian and international law, procedure, and personnel-was established to try key Khmer Rouge officials for atrocities they committed. In Hybrid Justice, John D. Ciorciari and Anne Heindel trace the tribunal's evolution and reveal the influence of contemporary local political forces on its unique form and function. Although international legal norms have largely been observed, political wrangling between national and international actors has greatly influenced the pace, jurisdictional scope, and perceived legitimacy of the court's proceedings. After examining the ECCC's performance in judicial affairs, administration, public outreach, and victim participation, the authors offer preliminary assessments of its contributions to justice, truth, and reconciliation. In the conclusion, they discuss apparent strengths and shortcomings of the hybrid model as an alternative to domestic or fully international tribunals.

This book covers the history of Cambodia since 1979 and the various attempts by the US and China to stop the Cambodian people from bringing the Khmer Rouge to justice. After Vietnam ousted the hated Khmer Rouge regime, much of the evidence needed for a full-scale tribunal became available. In 1979 the US and UK governments, rather than working for human rights justice and setting up a special tribunal, opted instead to back the Khmer Rouge at the UN, and approved the re-supply of Pol Pot's army in Thailand. Tom Fawthrop and Helen Jarvis reveal why it took 18 years for the UN to recognise the mass murder and crimes against humanity that took place under the Killing Fields regime from 1975-78. They explore in detail the role of the UN and the various countries involved, and they assess what chance still remains of holding a Cambodian trial under international law - especially in the light of the recent development of International Criminal Tribunals for Rwanda and the Former Yugoslavia.

'This book is an insider's account of the twenty-five year struggle to bring the Khmer Rouge to justice. Until 1991, the morally bankrupt real-politik of the West not only supported seating the Khmer Rouge in the United Nations, but opposed trying them for their crimes. Over a decade later, a Cambodian - United Nations tribunal is about to convene...This book could not be more timely.' Dr. Gregory H. Stanton, Founder of The Cambodian Genocide Project and President of Genocide Watch 'This book will be essential reading for academics, diplomats, journalists, Cambodia specialists and others who follow the Khmer Rouge trial closely...The diplomatic, legal and technical twists and turns detailed here are fascinating, instructive and, at times, alarming. For years to come - as the Khmer Rouge trial unfolds or collapses - scholars and commentators are going to find much in this book to inform their analysis of what happened and why.' Bill Herod, head of a social service agency in Phnom Penh and a development worker in Cambodia for over thirty years Twenty-five years after the overthrow of the Pol Pot regime, not one Khmer Rouge leader has stood in court to answer for their terrible crimes. Tom Fawthrop and Helen Jarvis show how governments that often speak the language of human rights shielded Pol Pot and his lieutenants from prosecution during the 1980s. After Vietnam ousted the Khmer Rouge regime in 1979, the US and UK governments backed the Khmer Rouge at the UN, and approved the re-supply of Pol Pot's army in Thailand. The authors explain how, in the late 1990s, the forgotten genocide became the subject of serious UN inquiry for the first time. Finally, in 2003, the UN and the Cambodian government agreed to hold a trial in Phnom Penh conducted jointly by international jurists and Cambodian lawyers and judges. Tom Fawthrop and Helen Jarvis reveal why it took 18 years for the UN to recognise the mass murder and crimes against humanity that took place under the Killing Fields regime. They assess the prospects for the tribunal that could embarrass some former world leaders and a number of governments.

The Khmer Rouge held power in Cambodia from 1975 to 1979 and aggressively pursued a policy of radical social reform that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Cambodians through mass executions and physical privation. In January 1979, the government was overthrown by former Khmer Rouge functionaries, with substantial backing from the army of Vietnam. In August of that year a special court, the People's Revolutionary Tribunal, was constituted to try two of the Khmer Rouge government's most powerful leaders, Pol Pot and Ieng Sary. The charge against them was genocide as it was defined in the United Nation's genocide convention of 1948. At the time, both men were in the Cambodian jungle leading the Khmer Rouge in a struggle to regain power; they were, therefore, tried in absentia. Genocide in Cambodia assembles documents from this historic trial and contains extensive reports from the People's Revolutionary Tribunal. The book opens with essays that discuss the nature of the primary documents, and places the trial in its historical, legal, and political context. The documents are divided into three parts: those relating to the establishment of the tribunal; those used as evidence, including statements of witnesses, investigative reports of mass grave sites, expert opinions on the social and cultural impact of the actions of Pol Pot and Ieng Sary, and accounts from the foreign press; and finally the record of the trial, beginning with the prosecutor's indictment and ending with the concluding speeches by the attorneys for the defense and prosecution. The trial of Pol Pot and Ieng Sary was the world's first genocide trial based on United Nations's policy as well as the first trial of a head of government on a human rights-related charge. This documentary record is significant for the history of Cambodia, and it will be of the highest importance as well to the international legal and human rights communities.
