Handbook of International Criminal Law

Now available from Routledge, the Routledge Handbook of International Criminal Law features new, specially commissioned papers by a range of international and leading experts in the field and contains reflections on the theoretical aspects and contemporary debates in international criminal law.

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 book provides a timely and comprehensive survey of emerging and existing areas of international criminal law.

The book is split into four parts for ease of reference:

  • The Historical and Institutional Framework – Sets international criminal law firmly in context with individual chapters on the important developments and key institutions which have been established.
  • The Crimes – Identifies and analyses international crimes, including a chapter on aggression.
  • The Practice of International Tribunals – Focuses on topics relating to the practice and procedure of international criminal law.
  • Key Issues in International Criminal Law – Goes on to explore issues of importance such as universal jurisdiction, amnesties and international criminal law and human rights.

Providing easy access to up-to-date and authoritative articles covering all key aspects of international criminal law, this book is an essential reference work for students, scholars and practitioners working in the field.
