The International Criminal Court (ICC) began operations in 2003, and the Human Rights Watch organization recently released this detailed look into the first few years of their operations. The 244-page report was released in July 2008, and it is divided into eight chapters that cover the ICC's various divisions, including the Office of the Prosecutor, victim and witness protection, and outreach and communications. Commenting on the report Richard Dicker, the International Justice Program director at Human Rights Watch, said, "the court should tackle real shortcomings so that its work resonates in the communities most affected by major international crimes." The report is also available in French and Japanese, and for persons with a penchant for international law or human rights; it is well worth a look.
