These deficiencies require us to ask: Is transitional justice just? Do international tribunals or improved “hybrid courts” or “truth with justice” innovations represent the building blocks of a new, just world order? This article seeks to answer these questions. It lays out the deficiencies of these instruments and argues that ignoring or combating them will not help. Instead, human rights advocates and those who care about international justice must (1) be more honest in acknowledging the unfairness and flaws of current transitional justice tools, and (2) work more aggressively at ending their unequal application and their misuse as "victors' justice."
