Sentencing War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity under the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia

Edited by: Olaoluwa Olusanya

How does one distinguish, for the purpose of imposing punishment of different degrees of severity, war crime offenses from similar offenses when committed as a crime against humanity? This books attempts to tackle the question and devise a system of fixed penalties which can be globally utilized as a basis for distinguishing between both categories of international crimes in terms of gravity and which is sufficiently flexible to accommodate the full gamut of relevant sentencing variables. Attention has also been given to the jurisprudence of World War II tribunals and national laws on both categories of international crimes.
