THE UN INTERNATIONALCRIMINAL TRIBUNALS
This book is a guide to the law that applies in the three internationalcriminal tribunals, for the former Yugoslavia, Rwanda and SierraLeone, set up by the United Nations during the period 1993 to 2002to deal with atrocities and human rights abuses committed duringconflict in those countries. Building on the work of an earlier genera-tion of war crimes courts established in the aftermath of the SecondWorld War, the three tribunals have developed a sophisticated body of law concerning the elements of the three international crimes (geno-cide, crimes against humanity and war crimes), forms of participationin such crimes as well as other general principles of internationalcriminal law, procedural matters and sentencing. The legacy of thetribunals will be indispensable as international law moves into a moreadvanced stage, with the creation of the International Criminal Court.The book provides a comprehensive overview of the law of the tribu-nals, relying on their judicial decisions as well as the drafting history of their statutes and other contemporary sources. While there is a wealthof periodical literature on specific aspects of the activities of thesetribunals, this is the first comprehensive book to be published in morethan a decade.
