Paperback / softback
Cambridge University Press
UK Publication Date

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.

'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

'There is a lot of commendable critical engagement with the case law and literature and the praise by John Dugard in his foreword is certainly deserved. … one of the more refreshing publications in the field that deserves a wide readership. I look forward to seeing the second volume.' International Criminal Law Review

'With the work of international criminal tribunals like the ones on Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia becoming more and more visible, the relatively new branch of law called 'international criminal law' - heralded by Nuremberg - has begun to come into its own. … To spread knowledge and awareness of the new regime, Cambridge University Press has launched a practitioner library series on the subject and this is one of two volumes planned within that project. It covers forms of responsibility in international criminal law and deals with such matters as: joint criminal enterprise; indirect co-perpetration; superior responsibility; complicity; substantial effect; planning, instigating and ordering; and sentencing. … those interested in the subject will find it an invaluable source of information.' Commonwealth Lawyer's Association and Contributors
