It brought to a completion the final stage of the War Crimes Justice Project which has been implemented by UNICRI and the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights. The goal of the manual is to enhance the capacity of legal professionals in the field of international criminal law and especially in the region of the Former Yugoslavia.
The Manual provides an overview of some of the most effective and innovative practices developed by defence counsels representing war crimes suspects before the ICTY. The manual is intended to be a reference tool for counsel defending cases of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide
