The Right to a Fair Trial in International Law brings together the diverse sources of international law that define the right to a fair trial in the context of criminal (as opposed to civil, administrative or other) proceedings. The book provides a comprehensive explanation of what the right to a fair trial means in practice under international law and focuses on factual scenarios that practitioners and judges in court face.

Each of the book's fifteen chapters deal with one component of the right to a fair trial as defined in Article 14 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Highlighting both consensus and divisions in the international jurisprudence in this area, this book provides a valuable resource to practitioners and scholars dealing with breaches of one of the most fundamental human rights.
