New Book Publication: The Latest Volume of the Nuremberg Academy Series ‘Integrity in International Justice’ is out now

The Nuremberg Academy is pleased to announce that the fourth volume of the Nuremberg Academy Series entitled Integrity in International Justice, edited by Morten Bergsmo and Viviane E. Dittrich, has now been published.

This is the first book to comprehensively analyse integrity in international justice. Thirty-three chapters discuss in-depth the meaning of integrity, awareness and culture of integrity, the roles of international organizations and states as well as international courts in enhancing integrity, integrity as seen through the lens of cases, and the relationship between the principles of independence and integrity. The book considers integrity as a legally binding standard in international courts, while including perspectives from other disciplines such as philosophy, history, psychology and religion. It argues that respect for integrity among high officials and staff members is a prerequisite for international courts and other international organizations to fulfil their mandates.

Read the introductory chapter, which highlights the importance and relevance of the topic and provides a concise overview of the structure and content of the book.

The anthology relates to the international expert conference ‘Integrity in International Justice’, which was co-organised by the Nuremberg Academy and the Centre for International Law Research and Policy (CILRAP) in the Peace Palace in The Hague, The Netherlands, in December 2018.
