Abstract

Even before the formal end to the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda's operations, there was much talk about its legacy. This article demonstrates a sharp contrast between the ambiguities of what is and can be known about the Tribunal's legacy. Building on social theorist Zygmunt Bauman's work on “bids for immortality,” it identifies the phenomenon of “legacy talk,” that is, attempts to consolidate a set of interpretations about the substance and value of what remains prior to the departure of the legator.
