About the Frederick K. Cox International Law Center War Crimes Research Portal

The War Crimes Research Portal has four features:

First, it contains over a thousand links to websites related to international humanitarian law, arranged alphabetically by subject area and including a summary of the content of each site, making it one of the most comprehensive and usable research sites related to international humanitarian law and international criminal tribunals on the Internet.

Second, the Portal contains the text of over 120 research memoranda on issues pending before the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, the Special Court for Sierra Leone, and the International Criminal Court.†These memos were produced at the request of the International Prosecutors by students in Cleveland and Boston supervised by the Director of the Cox Center, Michael Scharf, under a project funded by the Open Society Institute.†With permission of the International Prosecutors, the memos are now available for world wide use at this Website.† They can be searched by date published, by title, or by keywords. Cites to the memos should take the following form: [Authorís name], [Title of Memo], Research Memorandum Prepared for the Office of the Prosecutor of the [Name of Tribunal], [Date].

Third, the Portal contains a Research Guide to international humanitarian law and tribunals, prepared by the Case Law School Law Library.† This easy-to-use guide includes a bibliography of relevant articles and books, as well as links to international law journals on the Web.

Finally, the Portal contains "instant analysis" articles, written each month by the members of the American Branch of the International Association of Penal Law, on the hottest topics in international criminal law.
