Steven D. Roper and Lilian A. Barria, professors in the Department of
Political Science at Eastern Illinois University, are frequent collaborators on
scholarly work concerning criminal tribunals. Their co-authored articles
and joint conference presentations on assorted aspects of this topic have
culminated in Designing Criminal Tribunals, a book that examines various ad
hoc tribunals, primarily those created since the end of the Cold War. These
tribunals include the United Nations International Criminal Tribunals for
the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and Rwanda (ICTR), both international
tribunals; the Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL), the Extraordinary
Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC), and the Special Crimes
Panel for East Timor (SCPET), all mixed tribunals; and the Indonesian
Human Rights Court (IHRC), a purely domestic court.
