More on Human Rights Watch's work on International Justice

This unique 861-page book organizes the decisions of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia by topic, including genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, individual criminal responsibility, command responsibility, affirmative defenses, jurisdiction, sentencing, fair trial rights, guilty pleas and appellate review. In selected cases, the book also applies key aspects of the law to the facts of the case.

Human Rights Watch had previously published a 285-page book (http://hrw.org/reports/2004/ij/) organizing the decisions of both the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda and the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia topically. The portion of that book covering Rwanda Tribunal law has also been translated into French (http://hrw.org/french/reports/2005/ictr0505/).
