This handbook is designed to enable readers to assist domestic and international criminal courts and tribunals. These institutions perform the challenging work of investigating and prosecuting the most serious crimes of concern to the international community: crimes against humanity, war crimes and genocide (hereafter international crimes). This handbook aims to facilitate a clearer understanding of these institutions and their work so that persons based in field operations, or who are otherwise present in areas where these crimes happen, can better cooperate with criminal investigations. Although the predominant focus will be on rendering assistance to international criminal investigations, the guidance offered will also be of use to those who are in a position to assist national criminal investigations, human rights organizations and truth and reconciliation commissions.
