Over the next week, we will be featuring guest posts from contributors to the Ashgate Research Companion to International Criminal Law: Critical Perspectives, which was published earlier this month. It was edited by myself, William A. Schabas, and Niamh Hayes. The book aims to take a critical approach to a wide variety of theoretical, practical, legal and policy issues surrounding and underpinning the operation of international criminal law as applied by international criminal tribunals.
The book’s 23 chapters, written by well-known authorities in the field of international criminal justice, cover a wide variety of issues, from modes of liability to complementarity and from procedure to politics. The preface is by Judge Chile Eboe-Osuji.
We hope that the forthcoming guest posts, and the book itself, will provide an insight into the continuing challenges of international criminal justice. Thanks to all of our fantastic authors for helping to make this happen!
