Antony Duff, Professor, University of Minnesota Law School, Professor Emeritus, University of Stirling, Department of Philosophy, sketches a normative account of domestic criminal trials as a process of calling an alleged wrongdoer to public account. He then discusses the significant role that trials can play (independently of the substantive punishments that might or might not follow them) in the contexts of transitional justice and of international criminal justice.
