The WCRO serves as a source of expertise in humanitarian and international criminal law for relevant international organizations. In the past year, for example, the office undertook international law research projects for the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), the Special Court for Sierra Leone, and the Special Panels for Serious Crimes in East Timor. This year we are beginning work for the International Criminal Court as well. We also speak at conferences on relevant legal issues, and publish regularly on the development of international criminal law through international jurisprudence.
