This house believes post conflict peace cannot be sustained without fair justice.

Topic's explanation

Balancing peace and justice has been a key moral issue for international criminal law. Should individuals always be prosecuted, or can justice be traded away for peace? Is it merely a chicken-or-egg scenario, therefore which, if any, has to come first?

Peace and justice may mean different things to different people, and different people will have different goals. But is justice necessary in order to maintain a long-lasting peace?

What do you think?
