Résumé
This market leading textbook is written by an expert in the field of international criminal law. The author uses his broad academic expertise and judicial experience to provide a uniquely personal approach to the subject, with thought-provoking analysis that also brings the political and human contexts to life.

International Criminal Law established itself as the most popular textbook in the field in its first edition. The second edition continues to provide a clear and concise introduction to both substantive international criminal law and international criminal procédure. The book offers a stimulating explanation of the fundamentals of these two branches of international criminal law and provides a theoretical framework to the rules, principles, concepts and legal constructs that are central to the subject. The book covers the various international courts and tribunals as well as mixed or hybrid courts or such national courts as the Iraqi High Tribunal. In addition to using the case law of the International Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda and of recent mixed tribunals, it uniquely draws upon national jurisprudence, in particular Belgian, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and US case law on international crimes.

NEW TO THIS EDITION :

. New chapters on joint criminal enterprise and command responsibility ensure the book is up to date and covers topics that have acquired crucial importance in the international legal scene
. References to case law have been updated and expanded in light of the rapid developments in international jurisprudence
