The move to end impunity for human rights atrocities has seen the creation of international and hybrid tribunals and increased prosecutions in domestic courts. The Oxford Companion to International Criminal Justice is the first major reference work to provide a complete overview of this emerging field. Its nearly 1100 pages are divided into three sections. In the first part, 21 essays by leading thinkers offer a comprehensive survey of issues and debates surrounding international humanitarian law, international criminal law, and their enforcement. The second part is arranged alphabetically, containing 320 entries on doctrines, procedures, institutions and personalities. The final part contains over 400 case summaries on different trials from international and domestic courts dealing with war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide, torture, and terrorism. With analysis and commentary on every aspect of international criminal justice, this Companion is designed to be the first port of call for scholars and practitioners interested in current developments in international justice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A significant work which treats its subject both broadly and in depth in an accessible manner...With analysis and commentary on every aspect of international criminal justice, this Companion is designed to be an entry point for scholars, practitioners, and others interested in current developments in international justice. * David Badertscher, New York Law Librarian *
The Companion offers a unique and comprehensive explanation and analysis of the most important issues in international criminal law. Although such a book has been long awaited by scholars and practitioners, it can be noted that it was worth waiting for... * Jernej Cernic, International Law Observer.eu *
The strength of this book lies in the various professional backgrounds of its contributors, some of them being practitioners working in international tribunals...The book addresses intricate issues of international criminal justice in a manner that is also accessible to persons who are not familiar with criminal law. It is thus designed, not only to be a good doctrinal and practical support for both international scholars and criminal lawyers, but also to be used by anyone interested in current developments in international criminal law. A great read! * Elise Hansbury, Journal de TRIAL n19, july 2009 *
Twelve hundred pages long, written by 132 authors, and comprising 21 essays, 300 encyclopedia entries, and more than 330 case synopses, the book is, quite simply, the most ambitious edited work in the history of international criminal law (ICL). Fortunately it is also the best. * Kevin Jon Heller, Melbourne Law School, The American Journal Of International Law vol 104 *
