This new book examines critical challenges in achieving accountability for genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes. It focuses in particular on the relationship between national and international accountability mechanisms in pursuing key goals over the past decade. As the International Criminal Court begins operation, the relationship between domestic and international prosecutions and between criminal and non-criminal forms of accountability will take on added significance. While national and international responses to atrocities can be complementary -- as the Rome Statute of the ICC envisions -- challenges will arise in navigating the relationship between those efforts and in developing effective domestic mechanisms that meet unique goals and needs in different countries.
