The Amicus Curiae in International Criminal Justice [9781509913329]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
The amicus curiae - or friend of the court - is the main mechanism for actors other than the parties, including civil society actors and States, to participate directly in proceedings in international criminal tribunals. Yet increasing reliance on this mechanism raises a number of questions. Are amicus interventions consistent with the inherent structure and purpose of a criminal trial? What impact might they have on the efficiency of trials, fair trial rights and the quality of judicial decision-making? Do amici enhance the representation of different interests in international criminal proceedings? Are amicus submissions actually influencing judicial or other outcomes? Is there a trend towards `non-traditional' uses of the amicus curiae, such as the amicus curiae prosecutor or amici as substitute defence counsel? These questions suggest issues integral to the legitimacy of international criminal trials and institutions, namely: who is able to be represented in proceedings, which actors seek to intervene in trials and why, whether the amicus curiae is an appropriate avenue for certain types of submissions, and what responsibilities might amici hold. This important new book examines the practice of international criminal tribunals and offers suggestions for the role of the amicus curiae before such tribunals.
