point Boycotts have a long heritage, having existed since Antiquity.12 The eponymous, if possibly apocryphal, tale of Charles Cunningham Boycott being forced to leave Ireland in the late nineteenth century speaks to the resonance that the lexicon ‘boycott’ has in the contemporary world. Equally, writing in 1933 in the British Year Book of International Law, Hersch Lauterpacht, who would go on to be knighted in 1956 while serving as a Justice in the International Court of Justice, noted that boycotts were ‘not a new phenomenon in international life’, having been

with the International Court of Justice. The Special Court of Sierra Leone is more known for the appearance of Naomi Campbell in the witness stand than for the historical trial of the Liberian President. The result is that some of the most important criminal trials in history are held with very little knowledge or interest from the international public. An outreach programme is placed at the Court, which 70 70 Perception shaped by other means aims to increase information and communication but it is targeted only at the population affected by the crimes rather

many ways, one does not have to be physically there for locals to create the camp population as a discursive global. The range of glocal actors in the Sahrawi case is colossal, from institutions such as the International Court of Justice (ICJ) meeting in 1974 to determine the Sahrawi right to self-determination, to international lawyers and jurists (Botha et al., 2010 ), UN and UNHCR to international aid agencies, and NGOs to small disparate humanitarian groups and occasional academic researchers.
