Siracusa Guidelines for International, Regional and National Fact-Finding Bodies

Professor Bassiouni and Christina Abraham(ISISC) as co-editors recently published the Siracusa Guidelines for International, Regional and National Fact-Finding Bodies, a novel book which attempts to serve as a guideline for investigation commissions and fact-finding bodies (Intersentia, 2013).

“Fact-Finding Bodies are an essential component of international, regional and national investigative processes. It is of paramount concern that they work to high and common standards. The obvious expertise and solid work of the Siracusa Committee has produced a draft of high quality, and of great practical application.”
Howard Morrison
Judge, ICC; Former Judge, ICTY

“These guidelines are an essential resource for anybody working on issues connected with international investigation commissions in the future.”
Serge Brammertz
Chief Prosecutor, ICTY
