In a recent article in the New York Review of Books, Aryeh Neier highlighted McGeorge School of Law  Distinguished Professor Emerita Linda Carter's book, co-authored with Mark Ellis and Charles Jalloh, The International Criminal Court in an Effective Global Justice System. Aryeh Neier co-founded Human Rights Watch, and is President Emeritus of George Soros's Open Society Foundations. Read the review here.

Neier refers to the book as "a comprehensive, fair-minded, and knowledgeable overview of the International Criminal Court and its relationship to the other tribunals established to do justice internationally." In the book, Carter, Ellis and Jalloh analyze the relationship of international criminal tribunals with national, regional and other international bodies. The authors contend that the ICC is only one part of a complete international justice system that must also include national and possibly regional forums.
