Professor M. Cherif Bassiouni’s death sent shockwaves through the community of legal scholars and practitioners. As an influential figure in the post–World War II era, Bassiouni helped determine the direction of international criminal law and international criminal justice. Bassiouni joined the Editorial Board of The Global Community YILJ in 2001, upon the invitation of its founder and General Editor Giuliana Ziccardi Capaldo. Like the United Nations and the various universities, institutes and societies Bassiouni served, the Yearbook is saddened by the loss of a modern master. His contributions cover doctrine, human rights advocacy that accentuates humanistic values, holistic post-conflict justice principles and projects, together with a life-long campaign for fair (global) law-making and (global) law-enforcement. With the death of Bassiouni, the community witnessed the departure of one of the innovative, inspirational and illustrious masterminds in the fight against impunity and realpolitik and for accountability and the rule of law.
