Friday 11 February 2011 at 5:00 pm at the Irish Centre for Human Rights.

Oxford University Press have just published Judicial Creativity at the International Criminal Tribunals, a collection of essays edited by Dr Shane Darcy, a lecturer at the Irish Centre for Human Rights, and Joe Powderly, a researcher at the TMC Asser Institute and a doctoral candidate at the Centre. This edited collection examines the contribution made by the judges of the Yugoslavia and Rwanda Tribunals to the development of international criminal law at an important juncture in the field. As the caseload grows for the International Criminal Court and the international criminal justice project continues to flourish, it is important to take stock of the achievements to date of international criminal bodies. This collection of essays provides a thoughtful analysis by judges, practitioners, and scholars of international criminal law of the profound changes in the field enacted by the judges of the International Criminal Tribunals for Rwanda and the Former Yugoslavia.
