Human rights lawyer and diplomat David Scheffer provides new insights into the continuing struggle for international justice. His book "All the Missing Souls: A Personal History of the War Crimes Tribunals" details the international gamble to prosecute those responsible for genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity.

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.

Scheffer currently teaches at the Northwestern University School of Law, where he directs the Center for International Human Rights.

The World Beyond the Headlines is a project of the Center for International Studies, which brings scholars, journalists, and world leaders to the University to discuss issues of current global importance.
