"International Criminal Investigations: Law & Practice is the first of its kind - a resource book on selected topics assessing more than twenty years of international criminal investigations, while addressing the practicalities and challenges of such investigations. It explores, from the perspective of expert practitioners, a thematic approach to important issues such as investigative strategies, planning and interview techniques for specific witnesses, financial investigations, while incorporating the personal experiences of those who have served as pioneers in this field. A necessary addition to the literature on international criminal law in practice, this volume meaningfully contributes to increased knowledge of the science and art involved in international criminal investigations. I welcome the publication of this edited volume of selected topics, scrupulously reviewing over twenty years of international criminal investigations. It is an important and timely contribution, which through the depth and thoroughly reflected quality of its content, offers real value. This impressive work will leave neither the academic nor the practitioner indifferent to its considerable insights." Fatou Bensouda, Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court

"The specialised nature of contributions and depth of coverage of selected topics are qualities that make this book a compelling read for international and domestic practitioners, students and others involved in the field of international criminal investigations." Hassan Bubacar Jallow, Chief Justice of The Gambia/ Former Prosecutor of the ICTR

"The editors and the authors have rendered a great service to the field. This book will become - and remain - an important work of reference on international criminal investigations." Olufemi Elias, Registrar, United Nations Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals

"The drama of international criminal law is often seen in the courtroom, but as the reach of international criminal tribunals has expanded, attention has shifted to the challenges of the investigative phase preceding the trial. This collection of essays could not, therefore, be more timely." Alex Whiting, Professor of Practice, Harvard Law School
