Leiden ; Boston : Brill Nijhoff, 
In this chapter Shannon Ghadiri examines whether the denial of a fair trial should be considered a crime against humanity. After a review of post-Second World War era cases dealing with the subject, she examines the application of human rights law regarding fair trial rights during national emergencies. Emphasis is placed on the fact that such derogations result in the right to a fair trial finding greater protection during times of war than during times of peace.
