The Publication Series

The 'Publication Series' of the Torkel Opsahl Academic EPublisher (TOAEP) was first established to make available to a broader audience papers presented at FICHL seminars and other suitable texts. Texts not presented at FICHL seminars which are considered particularly valuable to the international criminal justice, transitional justice or general international law discourses may also be published in the Series. Unsolicited texts are subjected to peer review. The books are made freely available as PDF files through this web page (which uses persistent URLs, ensuring that the unique URL of each book is never changed). The TOAEP offers quality publications through the Internet and in print to anyone interested. Reviews of books in the Publication Series are available here.
