Product Description

This book provides a comprehensive guide to the jurisprudence of the ad hoc Criminal Tribunals for the Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda (ICTY and ICTR) on such important procedural issues as indictment, disclosure, admissibility and presentation of evidence.

The book contains a digest of the relevant decisions, orders and judgements (Decisions) of the ad hoc Tribunals. The digest comprises decisions through June 2004.

The book also includes actual decisions which are organised topically on the CD-ROM. Most of the decisions on the CD-ROM are in electronically searchable format. The digest together with the collections of the actual decisions will assist practitioners and researchers in studying the jurisprudence of the ad hoc Tribunals. This jurisprudence reflects the current state of developing international criminal law. It will inevitably influence approaches of international courts, including the International Criminal Court (ICC) and "hybrid" tribunals, as well as national courts. The views expressed in this book are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of the United Nations.
