The move to end impunity for human rights atrocities has seen the creation of international and hybrid tribunals and increased prosecutions in domestic courts. The Oxford Companion to International Criminal Justice is the first major reference work to provide a complete overview of this emerging field.

Its 1200 pages are divided into three sections. In the first part, 21 essays by leading thinkers offer a comprehensive survey of issues and debates surrounding international humanitarian law, international criminal law, and their enforcement. The second part is arranged alphabetically, containing 300 entries on doctrines, procedures, institutions and personalities. The final part contains over 330 case summaries on different trials from international and domestic courts dealing with war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide, torture, and terrorism.

With analysis and commentary on every aspect of international criminal justice, this Companion is designed to be the first port of call for scholars and practitioners interested in current developments in international justice.

  • The only reference work that offers comprehensive coverage of all aspects of international criminal justice
  • The beginning of the first trials at the International Criminal Court give this book real practical significance
  • Combines long and short articles allowing users to pursue a topic from the introductory level through to a more in-depth level
  • Contributions from 120 leading academics, practitioners and judges offer a wide variety of perspectives
