Volume 1 , Forms of Responsibility in International Criminal Law

International Criminal Law Practitioner Library

Volume I of the International Criminal Law Practitioner Library series focuses on the law of individual criminal responsibility applied in international criminal law, providing a thorough review of the forms of criminal responsibility. The authors present a critical analysis of the elements of individual criminal responsibility as set out in the statutory instruments of the international and hybrid criminal courts and tribunals and their jurisprudence. All elements are discussed, demystifying and untangling some of the confusion in the jurisprudence and literature on the forms of responsibility. The jurisprudence of the ICTY and the ICTR is the main focus of the book. Every trial and appeal judgement, as well as relevant interlocutory jurisprudence, up to 1 December 2006, has been surveyed, as has the relevant jurisprudence of other tribunals and the provisions in the legal instruments of the ICC, making this a highly relevant work.


 Reviews:

"This book could not be more timely or important. International criminal law is one of the fastest growing areas of international law, with enormously important implications for practitioners and politicians alike. Here at last is a book that can serve both as a scholarly reference and a practitioners' manual, simplifying the complexities of multiple decisions from multiple tribunals and systematizing the law governing both individual criminal responsibility and the elements of international crimes."
--Anne-Marie Slaughter, Dean, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University


"...The first volume looks at forms of responsibility in international law, i.e. the much-discussed joint criminal enterprise, superior responsibility, aiding and abetting, etc....There is a lot of commendable critical engagement with the case law and literature and the praise by John Duggard in his foreword (p. xvi) is certainly desrved....All in all, one of the more refreshing publications in the field that deserves a wide readership..."
---M. Bohlander, International Criminal Law Review 8 (2008) 699-712


"...intriguing collection...This collection of prominent assessments and proposals of the major methods for retaining biological diversity provides a page-turning summary of the heart of today's critical mass. It is superbly written and edited. Its substantive core is intelligently supported by useful footnoting, written in support of a quite readable text...a must for all university (and private) environmental libraries. Politicians, academicians, and all others--will hopefully employ perspectives provided by this telling critique of the need to pursue biological diversity."
--ASIL Newsletter [ISSUE #39: May 2009]


"The International Criminal Law Practitioner Library will find its way onto the bookshelves of many practitioners and will undoubtedly serve as the first stop for quick and reliable answers to the numerous issues that arise at trial.... It will remain an extremely valuable resource for those who practice criminal law at the international level."
- Daryl A. Mundis, Journal of International Criminal Justice
