Model Codes for Post-Conflict Justice
The long-awaited Model Codes for Post-Conflict Criminal Justice have now been published: http://bookstore.usip.org/books/BookDetail.aspx?productID=164377. Vivienne O'Connor, who has been rule of law project officer at the Irish Centre for Human Rights, and who was awarded a PhD at the Irish Centre earlier this year, is one of the editors, along with Colette Rausch. The Codes project began in 2001 as a partnership between the United States Institute of Peace and the Irish Centre for Human Rights. Over the years, hundreds of international experts have been involved in preparation of these Codes.
