This Research Handbook examines the punishment of atrocity crime and presents a wide-ranging critique of post-conviction law, policy and practice. With a team of expert contributing authors, Róisín Mulgrew and Mikkel Jarle Christensen provide insights into the impact and implications of punishment models, strategies and frameworks.

Taking a multidisciplinary approach, chapters analyse the work of international criminal courts and tribunals, as well as domestic criminal, military and traditional justice systems. Authors utilise a wide range of research methods and tools to bring the impact of different penalties, sentencing policies and sentence enforcement models to light. They also outline the implications of release and post-release strategies for a variety of stakeholders, such as accused persons, courts, states and wider society. Individually and collectively, these contributions add to a growing body of literature on how punishment can prevent and address atrocity crime, while also challenging contemporary assumptions about systems of punishment.

The Research Handbook on the Punishment of Atrocity Crimes is an essential read for academics, researchers and students in criminal law and justice, public international law and human rights. It is also an indispensable resource for lawyers, judges, policy-makers and practitioners working in the field of atrocity crime.
