This appendix accompanies the paper on Hybrid Tribunal Design. It offers comparative snapshots of the origins, structures, financing, jurisdiction, and staffing patterns of the various hybrid international tribunals (as have been established for the former Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Cambodia), special chambers (operating in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo), specialized prosecutorial cells (at work in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Guatemala), and mobile courts (also in the DRC) devoted to prosecuting atrocity crimes at the domestic level but with international support, expertise, and personnel. The goal was to develop a taxonomy of models and a “menu” of elements that could be mixed and matched as new accountability mechanisms are under consideration for emerging and current atrocity situations, such as Syria, the Central African Republic, North Korea, and South Sudan.
