This study analyses through the examination of several cases the main features of trans- national Human Rights litigation. These disputes cover claims, dealing with Human Rights violations or abuses of Humanitarian Law, which were brought in one or several domestic courts outside the State where the crimes were committed and the damage created. The study focuses on the strategies developed by different private and public protagonists of these special litigations at every stage of the procedure.
