International law is traditionally understood as a juridical means for restraining violence, which disciplines the excesses of state sovereignty. As such, it is imagined as the “other” of power politics which — as human rights activists assert — speaks truth (or justice) to power. International law is both a symptom and cause of the evolution of international society as it has moved beyond power politics as the sole driving force of international affairs. Justifying political decisions in legal terms has become an integral part of foreign policy, and even a ‘key aspect of modern war’.

In his L'histoire comme champ de bataille Enzo Traverso points out that memory as a socially relevant phenomenon appeared widely after 1989. The fall of the Soviet empire and the ensuing defragmentation of the world led to a situation in which a multitude of recollections, hitherto retained only in private, could enter the public space. Social memory became an element of identity and simultaneously an instrument of politics, increasingly encroaching upon the domain of legal discourse.
