Pressestimmen 'Beyond Payam Akhavan's impressive professional and academic distinctions as a former UN prosecutor lies a deep and enduring dedication to the pursuit of justice on the international stage. In Search of a Better World is a revelation of the some of the darkest moments of the world's recent history and a vital and enduring odyssey of hope for the future. An essential work on the human rights struggles of our times.' -- Shirin Ebadi Nobel Peace Prize winner and founder of the Defenders of Human Rights Center in Iran 'With precision and sensitivity as well as brutal honesty Payam Akhavan's In Search of a Better World highlights the complexity of modern conflict and the necessary solutions for our future. It is heartening to see essential tools (such as the Will to Intervene) being offered up in practical and meaningful ways when so many have turned their back on them and so on our responsibilities as global citizens.'-- Lieutenant-General Roméo A. Dallaire 'Payam Akhavan has produced a remarkable work -- a unique combination of fascinating biography moving descriptions of human suffering inflicted by malicious war criminals and recognition of the resilience courage and dignity of so many of the victims. This book will be appreciated by all who understand and reject the evils of irrational discrimination and applaud the efforts of those determined to end it.' -- Justice Richard J. Goldstone retired Justice of the Constitutional Court of South Africa and first Chief Prosecutor of the United Nations Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda '[Akhavan's] standing as the 2017 Massey Lecturer [is] not only deserved but overdue. The lecture's companion book In Search of a Better World: A Human Rights Odyssey is more than a treatise on rights: it's also effectively an autobiography showing how a crusade with global implications had its roots in personal experience.' -- Montreal Gazette 'Such an illustrious career played out against the backdrop of some of humanity's darkest moments makes for a revelatory heartbreaking and often challenging narrative.' -- Quill & Quire Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende Payam Akhavan is a Professor of International Law at McGill University in Montreal Canada a Member of the International Court of Arbitration and a former UN prosecutor at The Hague.
