Justice in Uncertain Times: A webinar discussion of Kamari Clarke’s new book, Affective Justice

When and Where

Thursday, September 24, 2020 12:00 pm to 2:15 pm


In Affective Justice, Kamari Clarke explores the African Union’s pushback against the ICC in order to theorize affect’s role in shaping forms of justice in the contemporary period. Drawing on fieldwork in the Hague, the African Union in Addis Ababa, sites of post-election violence in Kenya and Boko Haram’s circuits in Northern Nigeria, she formulates the concept of affective justice—as an emotional response to competing interpretations of justice—to trace how affect becomes manifest in judicial practices.
