Research into the impacts of war crime prosecution on public opinion range from broad to individualized studies. Lesser exists regarding the role of prosecution on trust in government and support for the military following a ruling. Through analysis of current international policies, this article sets out to analyze the impact of the people’s view of war crime prosecution on trust in democracy. Type and strength of the democracy are also taken into consideration. States who transitioned to democracy just before the events that led to war crime prosecution seem to be trusted less than those who shifted after or long before.
