Criminal accountability at what cost? Norm conflict, UN peace operations and the International Criminal Court

International organisations face the challenge of balancing conflicting norms. For instance the norms governing traditional UN peacekeeping missions and the the norm of international criminal accountability. Political scientists Tom Buitelaar (Leiden University) and Gisela Hirschmann (Leiden University) identify how international organisations respond to such conflicts and assess the UN’s ability, both in the past and the future, to reconcile the international criminal accountability norm and the acceptance and credibility of UN peace operations.
