This chapter discusses the role and position of international prosecutors in the appeal phase. It notes that today's international prosecutors have considerable discretion in relation to appeals, so much so that the very essence of their role on appeal lies in exercising this discretion by deciding which cases and points to appeal and how to respond to defence appeals. It describes how modern international prosecutors have exercised their discretion to appeal in cases finalized to 2011, and the outcomes of these appeals.
