In this book, Professor Islam examines the quest of Bangladesh for transition from its violent past to the peaceful future through judicial trials of atrocities committed during its liberation war in 1971. These international crimes trials, held under a domestic legislation, are uniquely distinct from international or hybrid international crimes trials. The book is a ground-breaking research work on the first ever such trials in the ICC era. It comprehensively analyses the hardcore legal issues contested in the tribunals and their judicial expositions reflected in all trial, appeal, and review judgments delivered as at the end of 2018. The author shows how the national law and judgments can be a conduit to import international law to enrich and harmonise the domestic law of Bangladesh; and whether the Bangladesh experience creates precedential effect for such future trials, offers lessons for the ICC complementarity, and contributes to the progressive development of Asian and international criminal jurisprudence.
