We focus on the crimes which are within the jurisdiction of international courts or tribunals – genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and aggression – and the means of prosecuting them.

The role of criminal law has also been discussed by a large number of leading commentators, with particular attention being paid to the boundaries of criminal sanctions, and particular concern being addressed to increasing criminalisation.

  • The chapter headings of this handbook provide a good indication of the meaning of the term ‘international criminal law’. Nevertheless, it is not a simple matter to furnish a succinct definition. The French language distinguishes between droit international pénal and droit pénal international. The difference between the two terms seems to reside largely in the types of crimes they address.

  • Few among us can claim to have shaped the course of world history. M. Cherif Bassiouni, however, is just such a man. Often referred to as the “father” of modern international criminal law, his fingerprints are upon every major international criminal law instrument of the past 45 years including the Apartheid Convention, the Torture Convention, and the Rome Statute for the International Criminal Court. An extraordinarily prolific scholar, Bassiouni has written and edited 72 books on Extradition Law, International and Comparative Criminal Law, International Human Rights, and U.S.

  • This book contains an overview of legal defenses in international criminal law that may be sustained before international criminal tribunals against war crimes charges. With the advent of the International Criminal Court, the subject matter of this book seems to be a topical one. My interest, especially in the role of the Rule of Law with regard to these defenses, derives from my 1998 Ph.D. thesis on the subject of “duress and law-finding,” in which, inter alia, the Rule of Law was propounded....

  • As the International Criminal Court is gathering momentum and facing a growing case-load, it appears necessary to revisit the fundamental concept underpinning the Rome Statute: complementarity. Despite its apparent simplicity, this notion is extremely complex and the Court is now faced with pressing questions regarding its interpretation. Yet, no comprehensive study has hitherto been undertaken regarding the multiple facets, historical and contemporary, legal, philosophical and practical of the notion of complementarity...

  • Psychologist Margaret Hagen, a professor and medical industry insider, details the very real danger of this booming business. In every state, a child can be taken away from a parent on the strength of five minutes of "neutral" testimony from a social worker. A criminal suspect’s freedom or incarceration can depend on a superficial psychological examination performed by an incompetent, overworked, or, at worst, paid-off psychologist.

  • International criminal law is a new branch of law, with one foot in international law and the other in criminal law. Until the Nuremberg trial, international criminal law was largely ‘horizontal’ in its operation – that is, it consisted mainly of co-operation between states in the suppression of national crime. Extradition was therefore the central feature of international criminal law.

  • This statement – that “nothing is criminal except by law [existing at the time of the act]” is a mere nonbinding principle of justice – has a cynical ring to it. It implies that judges can and should ignore principles of justice in service of the sovereign powers that created their court.

  • This book provides a hugely important contribution to a complex and vital area of international criminal law. For the courts and tribunals which are charged with the responsibility of trying the most serious cases in the criminal calendar, there can be few subjects of greater concern than the approach that should be taken when dealing with the alleged responsibility of those who are seemingly ‘in control’ when the worst international crimes are committed.
