 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.

First readers’ praises: 

- "You are providing an excellent and, for me, invaluable service." Diana Geddes, International Law and Human Rights correspondent, The Economist

- "IJT's work is admirable." Richard Dicker, Human Rights Watch

- "Indispensable." Andre Guichaoua, Professor, Sorbonne University

- "A newspaper of great interest." Judge Claude Jorda, (ICTY/ICC)

- "I admire how much on top of issues you are." Marieke Wierda, International Centre for Transitional Justice (ICTJ)

- IJT praised for relevance: “Well documented. Interesting articles give a concise picture of the work of international jurisdictions”. (Evaluation International Justice Tribune, 2011)
