Whatever drives you to report on justice, you need to have the tools to do it. That is what this handbook sets out to provide. It is intended for journalists undertaking one of the most challenging, important and potentially rewarding of tasks: reporting on the trials of war crimes suspects or investigating war crimes on the ground.

The handbook reviews reporting on general, political and human rights issues. It has sections on location recording and computer based audio editing. It provides guidance on safety and security and sensitive reporting in conflict areas, as well as libel issues. Developed out of the radio journalism workshops that were run as part of IWPR's Uganda Radio Network project, it also reviews the particular requirements for reporting for IWPR.
