The Requirement of “Effective Investigation” of Crimes and Some Aspects of Its Implementation in the Context of Armed Conflict


The author addresses the question of “procedural obligations” stemming from human rights standards which require governmental authorities to investigate crimes, including those committed in the context of armed conflict. Relying upon the experience of the Human Rights Advisory Panel in Kosovo and some international law enforcement structures, the article discusses certain legal and practical problems faced by international investigative teams and analyses the impact of those problems on the effectiveness of their work.
