Judicial and quasi-judicial institutions play an increasingly important interpretative role in bringing international human rights law to life and shaping its contours. Any study of contemporary international human rights law must therefore look beyond a mere textual analysis of codified norms. Only through critical analysis of the human rights decision-making process can the breadth and effectiveness of the protection afforded be fruitfully gauged. Such analysis is urgently needed in a multi-polar, international community where questions concerning the function and adequacy of human rights law are routinely raised. The International Human Rights Law in Practice Series meets this need by studying the practice of international and regional institutions in the field of human rights. Through the publication of rigorous scholarship in the form of peer-reviewed monographs, commentaries and documentary collections, the Series aims to disseminate specialized research, foster debate on topical human rights issues, and contribute to the training of human rights lawyers.
This Series is designed to shed light on current legal and political aspects of process and organization in the field of human rights.
The Annotated Digest of the International Criminal Court is an annual or biennial series, which compiles a selection of the most significant legal findings rendered in public decisions of the International Criminal Court. It is devised, first and foremost, as a reference tool for academics and practitioners of international criminal law to enable efficient and thorough research of ICC jurisprudence.

Abstracts of the legal findings are selected based on the following criteria:
1) clarification or interpretation of a rule or a point of law;
2) application of a specific rule as applied by a Chamber; or
3) findings or rulings which are otherwise meaningful with respect to international justice, human rights, international humanitarian law.

Each abstract is inserted after the article(s) of the Statute, Rules of Procedure and Evidence and Regulations of the Court to which it corresponds, together with a short description or summary of its relevance. This quick reference system makes it easy to refer to other decisions quoted elsewhere in the Digest.

The series published one volume over the last 5 years.

The series is a venue for books on European immigration and asylum law and policies where academics, policy makers, law practitioners and others look to find detailed analysis of this dynamic field. Works in the series will start from a European perspective. The increased co-operation within the European Union and the Council of Europe on matters related to immigration and asylum requires the publication of theoretical and empirical research. The series will contribute to well-informed policy debates by analyzing and interpreting the evolving European legislation and its effects on national law and policies. The series brings together the various stakeholders in these policy debates: the legal profession, researchers, employers, trade unions, human rights and other civil society organizations.

Published under the Transnational Publishers imprint. This series has been discontinued. The follow up series is the International Criminal Law Series.

The Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law is an academic institution formed in 1984 at the University of Lund, Sweden. The Institute is named after a distinguished Swedish diplomat, Raoul Wallenberg, in recognition of his humanitarian accomplishments in Hungary during the Second World War.
The purpose of the Institute is to promote research, training and academic education in the broad field of human rights and humanitarian law, with a basis in public international law and also drawing on other academic disciplines. The Institute's programmes also cover refugee law, international labour standards, intellectual property rights, international criminal law, democracy, and good governance, as set forth in instruments and guidelines adopted by intergovernmental organizations.
The Institute co-operates closely with the University of Lund and several other academic institutions and international organisations. The RWI participates in networks of Nordic, European and international human rights institutes and works actively with them on various human rights and international development projects. In cooperation with the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and with other institutions, the Institute organizes extensive academic and training programmes for the dissemination of human rights standards, democratic values and the rule of law, in Sweden and in several other countries.
Together with Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, the Raoul Wallenberg Institute has initiated four series of publications and publishes a number of related books and journals.

The series published an average of 1,5 volumes per year over the last 5 years.
