Develop a publication which provides readers with summaries of the judgments of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC). This work will contribute to the legacy of the ECCC by providing law students, academics and practitioners with an overview of the decisions of the ECCC, thereby enabling them to better transfer the lessons from these decisions, particularly as they relate to issues in criminal procedure, to the domestic system.
