Handbook on Complementarity
By the International Center for Transitional Justice
How complementarity works and what its impact has been on the ICC and national authorities are critical aspects of today’s debate about how best to pursue justice for victims. The Handbook examines a number of case studies, including Colombia and Libya. Visit their multimedia presentation for an in-depth look at how the ICC and national courts have handled justice in those contexts.
By describing how complementarity works in practice and how it has been applied in countries like Afghanistan, Colombia, Cote d’Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, and Libya, the handbook is meant to provide readers with a deeper understanding of the inner workings of the ICC and national courts and make some of the debates surrounding the court more critical and less polemical.
