On November 16, 2018 the Trial Chamber of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia delivered its judgement for Case 002/02. The Trial Chamber found Nuon Chea, and Khieu Samphan guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity. The judgement in Case 002/02 marks an important moment in international criminal law; a hybrid court was able to deliver a guilty verdict for two senior leaders and those most responsible for crimes committed during Democratic Kampuchea. In this paper, I seek to understand the territorial and temporal implications of Case 002/02, particularly as it exists alongside the mandate of the ECCC. I argue that the geographic and temporal framing of hybrid justice determinations is crucial for understanding the political implications of international assistance to national justice.
