  • Legal Representation, Fairness and Access to Justice at Hybrid Tribunals and Specialised Chambers

The IBA’s ICL Perspectives report, ‘Legal Representation, Fairness and Access to Justice at Hybrid Tribunals and Specialised Chambers’, focuses on the important role of defence and victims’ counsel in ensuring fair trials and access to justice for victims at these institutions. In the context of the renewed relevance of hybrid tribunals and specialised chambers for the adjudication of international crimes, this report examines the structures and practices that have developed to support effective defence legal representation and victim participation, and sets out some of the future considerations for legal representation at these institutions. The report draws on examples taken from hybrid tribunals and specialised chambers including the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, the Extraordinary African Chambers in Senegal and Uganda’s International Crimes Division.
