Structure and Management

(p.171) 5 Structure and Management
International Prosecutors

Gregory Townsend

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the organizational structures that the prosecutors have established for their offices at the international criminal tribunals and courts. It also analyses the management of international prosecution offices. These offices have faced knotty management challenges — some of which are common to all the tribunals — including setting up, establishing a productive office structure, recruiting and retaining highly skilled staff, securing evidence and the cooperation of witnesses, managing vast quantities of data, and effectively communicating with stakeholders. Sections 2 to 12 of the chapter describe and analyse in turn the structures, organization, and management of the eleven different international prosecution offices from that set up in Nuremberg in 1945 until the time of this writing. Section 13 concludes that the organizational structures of these offices have been varied and adapting over time, and that the results were driven, more than by any other factor, by the qualities and skills of the individuals involved rather than the structure or hierarchy in place.
