A Fair Trial at the International Criminal Court? Human Rights Standards and Legitimacy

Procedural Fairness in the Context of Disclosure of Evidence and the Right to Have Witnesses Examined


Elmar Widder

This book approaches the question of whether or not the court procedure at the International Criminal Court (ICC) can be regarded as fair from two angles: First, does the ICC provide a fair trial according to the accepted standards of international human rights law? Secondly, is it substantively fair so as to establish the legitimacy of the court on a sound footing? Practitioners and academics are increasingly conscious of the need for an approach to evidence which spans civil law and common law traditions, national and international law. This is what this monograph does, in meticulous detail, for the law of confrontation and disclosure.
