Accounting for Disposable Lives: Visibility, Atrocity and International Justice

  • Suvendrini Perera
Part of the Mobility & Politics book series (MPP)

Analysis centres on the satellite images recorded by various international agencies as forms of remote monitorship that represent, both metaphorically and materially, the hovering telescopic oversight of international justice over this seemingly obscure war.
