About the Authors
  • International criminal law is shaped by the influence of individual scholars and the impact of specific rulings and legal frameworks. This volume provides a fresh perspective on the subject, revisiting the sources, treatment and reception of doctrine and jurisprudence from an inter-generational perspective. Analysis of the role of scholars and practitioners such as Arendt, Damaška and Cassese on the conceptualisation of law and jurisprudence, is followed by an assessment of the goals and scope of international criminal law, including contemporary developments relating to the interplay between international and domestic jurisdiction, the role of actors and crime definitions. Finally, the volume includes a review of key concepts of individual responsibility and procedural law.

    • Contributions by a mix of established scholars and new voices provide a novel and innovative perspective on contemporary law and doctrine
    • Offers an in-depth review of the contemporary foundations and challenges of international criminal law, allowing for a critical re-thinking of existing law and practice
    • Addresses substantive law and international criminal procedure, based on scholarship by academics and practitioners, making the work relevant to academics as well as international and domestic courts and tribunals
