The volume edited by Bartłomiej Krzan offers different perspectives on the prosecution of international crimes. The analyses contained therein reflect different backgrounds, mainly legal, combining several disciplines, and making it a multidisciplinary study.
The main (but definitely not the exclusive) point of reference is that of international law. In addition, other perspectives, those of legal history or sociology of law and obviously the one of criminal law (both substantive and procedural) provide useful alternatives or in most occasions complementary approaches to the examination of the prosecution of international crimes.
The book combines different views, backgrounds and underlying assumptions. But gathered together they, it is to be hoped, shed some additional, useful light that might be helpful for identifying new dimensions of the reaction (judicial or other) towards international crimes.

The present article addresses the legacy of the late Professor Krzysztof Skubiszewski with a view to analysing his vision of the judicial function of the International Court of Justice vis-à-vis the Security Council. Although the issue has attracted much scholarly and practical attention, it may be argued that the position taken by Skubiszewski, successfully combining theory with practice, remains highly relevant despite the lapse of time and subsequent developments. The relations between the two main organs of the United Nations are examined particularly in the light of the latest jurisprudence of the International Court of Justice.
