This book was compiled by the International Justice Program at Human Rights Watch. It represents the work of Jennifer Trahan, International Justice Counsel, and Adela Mall, Consultant. Intern Ann Ferrari assisted with the case law of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), and Ivan Jovanovic assisted with the case law of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). Richard Dicker, Director of the International Justice Program, provided overall guidance. Widney Brown was responsible for editing, and Wilder Tayler and James Ross provided the legal and policy review. Yolanda J. Revilla was responsible for preparing the manuscript for publication.
We are grateful to the judges and staff of the ICTR and ICTY for producing this important body of case law.
Human Rights Watch would also like to acknowledge the War Crimes Research Office and the Human Rights Brief, the latter of which served as a useful resource for Human Rights Watch. The War Crimes Research Office and the Human Rights Brief operate out of the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law of American University’s Washington College of Law.
