The subject of administering international criminal justice has again grasped our short lived attention when the decision of the prosecutor at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague to apply for an arrest warrant against the Sudanese state president Omar Bashir made the news. This chapter attempts to provide a short overview of the possibilities of holding individuals criminally accountable for human rights atrocities before the different existing international criminal forums.
