Summary
"After a brief introduction to the history of international criminal law (from its origins through Nuremburg to the ad hoc tribunals for the Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda), [this book] summarizes basic principles of international accountability (such as the doctrine of 'legality') and concepts of international criminal jurisdiction (including 'universal' jurisdiction). Several chapters focus on the International Criminal Court, in particular its substantive jurisdiction (genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and aggression), modes of liability and available defenses. Additional chapters cover the purposes and procedures of extradition (and its alternatives, such as 'rendition') and mutual legal assistance (obtaining evidence abroad for use in criminal cases). Attention is also given to the major 'transnational crimes, ' including terrorism, corruption, trafficking and organized crime."--
