ICA International Criminal Law Collection
Edited by: C. Tofan
International criminal law has developed extraordinarily quickly over the last decade, with the creation of ad hoc tribunals in the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda, and the establishment of a permanent international criminal court. This collection provides a timely and comprehensive survey of emerging and existing areas of international criminal law. The book features documents, papers, and comments by a range of international and leading experts in the field. It contains reflections on the theoretical aspects and contemporary debates in international criminal law. Divided into three parts, the book examines: a) the history and institutional aspects related to international criminal law (work of the tribunals, history of crime, warfare, etc.); b) the crimes (genocide, crimes against humanity, etc.); and c) practical issues related to international criminal law. The book includes extensive bibliographic information on the topics of discussion. Covering all key aspects, this collection is an essential reference work for students, scholars, and practitioners working in the field of international criminal law.
