"He Seems to Come Out as a Personally Cruel Person": Perpetrator Re-Presentations in Direct Murder Cases at the ICTY

Anette B. Houge has written a chapter in Homicide, Gender and Responsibility. An International Perspective.

About the book

"The crime of homicide has long animated academic debate, community concern and political attention. The discussion has often centered on the perceived (in)adequacy of legal responses to homicide, questions of culpability, and divergent representations of victims and offenders. Within this, notions of gender, responsibility and justice are pivotal. This edited collection builds on existing scholarship by examining these concerns not only in the context of the ‘private’ world of domestic murder but also in the more ‘public’ world of the state, the corporation, war, and genocide. In so doing this book draws from key frameworks of criminological thought, legal analysis and empirical evidence to critically examine the relationship between homicide, gender and responsibility."
