IJT closure a Paradox at ICC's 10th anniversary
The necessity for global coverage of international criminal and transitional justice is evident.
Knowledge of what goes on in court from Freetown to Sarajevo helps us understand what is being done today in Phnom Penh.
What is happening in Libya's courts for instance is of core importance to the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
Equally, the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda and the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia have helped shape war crimes justice in the affected countries.
