The Sierra Leone Special Court And Its Legacy from the Author: Charles Chernor Jalloh. The Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL) is the third modern international criminal tribunal supported by the United Nations and the first to be situated where the crimes were committed. This timely, important and comprehensive book is the first to critically assess the impact and legacy of the SCSL for Africa and international criminal law. Contributors include leading scholars and respected practitioners with inside knowledge of the tribunal, who analyze cutting-edge and controversial issues with significant implications for international criminal law and transitional justice. These include joint criminal enterprise; forced marriage; enlisting and using child soldiers; attacks against United Nations peacekeepers; the tension between truth commissions and criminal trials in the first country to simultaneously have the two; and the questions of whether it is permissible under international law for states to unilaterally confer blanket amnesties to local perpetrators of universally condemned international crimes.

Sierra Leone Beyond The Lome Peace Accord from the Author: M. Mustapha. The Lomé Peace Accord, signed in 1999, presented significant implications, challenges, and possibilities for post-conflict Sierra Leone, but the literature on post-conflict Sierra Leone only scantily addresses these issues. This project seeks to address the void in the literature on post-Lomé Sierra Leone.

Sierra Leone from the Author: Brett Sillinger. The small, underdeveloped countries of Africa, seem to harbour all the flammable elements necessary to ignite civil wars and revolutions. Since 1991, the small West African country of Sierra Leone has been besieged by the Revolutionary United Front (RUF), a guerrilla group-cum-political party, that implored a radical-populist political agenda. The cause of this conflict was the growth of systemic government corruption in the decades following the 1961 independence, which ultimately led to a severe deterioration of the state governing capacity. The contention over the control of the country's vast mineral wealth, which includes diamonds, as well as foreign interference - notably from the Liberian government, with which the RUF reportedly traded diamonds for arms - further fuelled the struggle. The 1999 Lome Peace Accord brought about an end to the conflict. RUF leadership changes and a cease-fire agreement in 2000 followed by conflict resolution meetings between government, RUF and UN officials also contributed to a more peaceful situation in Sierra Leone. to these new changes as well as the UN's sponsored disarmament efforts and electoral support for the new government. The hand that the United States has had in delivering humanitarian assistance to this country will be examined as well as the efforts made to try those guilty of crimes against humanity.

Sierra Leone from the Author: International Monetary Fund. African Dept.. The discussions took place in Freetown during March 29–April 11, 2012; and in Washington (April 21–24, 2012). They focused on conditions for completing the fourth ECF review, corrective measures to be implemented to address fiscal slippages that had occurred in late 2011, and policies for the remainder of 2012. Key performance criteria for end-December 2011 were met. However, sizeable spending overruns resulted in a higher-than-programmed fiscal deficit, financed by an increase in unpaid bills. Implementation of structural reforms was mixed, with some measures postponed to 2012. The authorities implemented all prior actions agreed with staff during the fourth ECF review discussions. Staff recommends completion of the fourth ECF review and the review of financing assurances.
