Case Digests: Update on Domestic Accountability for International Crimes

Download Files

The Open Society Justice Initiative has prepared short summaries of key decisions and other developments from national courts relating to accountability for international crimes, from late 2011 to May 2013. These summaries build on the Justice Initiative’s monitoring of the historic prosecution of Rios Montt in Guatemala, and are part of our work on international justice

The digest complements our summaries of key decisions and other developments relating to international criminal justice from the International Criminal Court, and other international criminal tribunals.

The summaries are part of our Case Digests series. They are produced by staff at the Justice Initiative in order to make decisions of the global justice mechanisms accessible to the widest possible audience.
