Release of the Practical Guide for Evaluating the Deterrent Effect of International and National Judicial Proceedings on Atrocity Crimes
The Nuremberg Academy has published ‘A Practical Guide for Evaluating the Deterrent Effect of International and National Judicial Proceedings on Atrocity Crimes’, which is now available for download on this website.
The practical guide has been created in collaboration with Professor Linda Carter and Jennifer Schense, who have edited in 2017 the Nuremberg Academy Series publication Two Steps Forward, One Step Back: The Deterrent Effect of International Criminal Tribunals. In 2018, and through 2019, the Nuremberg Academy decided to undertake a follow up project on deterrence and create a practical guide from the study with the goal of presenting the results in a simpler, more practice-oriented tool. It is relevant for experts interested in studying further and undertaking research into (potential) deterrent effects in the context of international criminal law.
The practical guide serves as a stand-alone tool. The Nuremberg Academy Series’ book publication can provide additional illustrations.
