    Despite the realist view according to which world politics is the realm of power and abuse, much research has been conducted over the last decades on how ethics could domesticate power. Academics have been tasked with making sense of a variety of different political innovations—including truth and reconciliation commissions, international tribunals, official apologies and reparations—which have tried to introduce ethical values into international relations. Have these attempts been successful? Have they, at least, managed to morally reproach the international crimes committed in the past and that continue to be committed today? These are the questions addressed by Catherine Lu’s book.
