About this item
"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 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 *** The investigation of international crimes is a dynamic and highly specialized field that continues to evolve. In 2017, the International Criminal Court celebrated its 15th anniversary, whereas several international tribunals are preparing to close and new national and hybrid justice mechanisms are only now entering the early stages of establishment. Although an analysis of international criminal law jurisprudence readily allows one to identify current trends and standards, analytical material remains to be relatively scarce on the evolving practice of international criminal investigations, its varied components and the unique challenges international investigators face. International Criminal Investigations is the first of its kind 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, and 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 will contribute to an increased knowledge of the science and art involved in international criminal investigations.
