The influence of a human rights paradigm over the recent development of local and regional criminal justice concerns throughout Europe is indisputable. Essential to this is the commitment that crucial lay parties within the justice process (such as the accused and the victims) should have adequate access to common procedural protections of criminal justice. This paper takes this trend and measures its influence on the development of international criminal justice, the trial in particular. At the very least we argue that parallel concerns about fair trial in the international procedural context will endorse the importance of a fair trial paradigm down to domestic trial levels. As part of this analysis, the essential connection between access to justice and fairness, in the context of international criminal trials, is critiqued.
