The authors examine, among other issues, the role of the defence during the different stages of international criminal proceedings, the key aspects of defence work which ensure the right of the accused to a fair trial, professional ethics, the United Nations Residual Mechanism for International Tribunals, and post-conviction remedies and issues relating to those serving prison sentences.
