Judge Sang-Hyun Song, President of the ICC
"The first two editions of Archbold International have provided an invaluable source for practitioners and judges alike. I am delighted that Sweet and Maxwell are publishing a third edition, covering the many developments in this fast-moving area.
Of particularly high value is the way this textbook enables a ready comparison of the regulatory framework of each of the tribunals, together with their jurisprudence. This book is to be recommended to everyone interested in the practice and theory of international criminal law."
Sir Geoffrey Nice QC, Lead Prosecutor in the Milosevic case
"Comprehensive and accessible, this book is as essential for the experienced International Humanitarian lawyer as for the practitioner making her/his first venture into work at these new courts. The law and practice is developing fast and Archbold will keep the practitioner abreast of the statutes, law and relevant commentary from around the globe and nowhere else available."
Michael Mansfield QC, leading Defence Counsel before the ICTY
"This definitive work covers one of the fastest growing and most far-reaching areas of Human Rights Law, which is having an immediate impact on the prospects for justice and peace throughout the world. It is still in its infancy, and presents a challenging organic fluidity influenced by principles culled from very different jurisdictions.
Without this uniquely honed text book, it would be impossible for practitioners to navigate through the maze of procedural and substantive law, touching areas well beyond Europe, from Cambodia to Sudan. Especially significant, is the representation of victims and their families. The ICC has recognised this pressing need with the establishment of a dedicated unit and the authors describe what is involved."
Richard Goldstone, the first Chief Prosecutor of the ICTY and ICTR
"Archbold: International Criminal Courts has undoubtedly already made a substantial contribution to the understanding of and implementation of the many new provisions that apply to the International Criminal Court. It will always be open on the desks in the offices of that Court."
