INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL LAW REPORTS
Edited by Rodney Dixon & Karim Khan
The International Criminal Law Reports will publish decisions of courts from around the world relevant to the rapidly developing field of international criminal law. This is a field that has expanded significantly in recent years with, amongst others:
- The establishment of international war crimes tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda.
- The adoption of a Statute for a permanent International Criminal Court (ICC).
- The proliferation of domestic proceedings concerned with war crimes and human rights violations, including the widely publicised Pinochet case.
- The development of interstate mutual assistance and enforcement procedures to address cross-border crime.
- The emergence of methods of combating offences committed through new information technology and the internet.
International criminal law impacts on the public, private and commercial sectors. The body of law includes war crimes, terrorism, extradition, state mutual assistance, money laundering, international corporate liability, drug trafficking, and computer and internet crime, together with human rights law. International criminal law is practised and enforced before both national and international courts, with many innovative approaches being adopted to meet the new challenges of a rapidly expanding field.
The International Criminal Law Reports will publish, cross-reference, and comment upon these precedents. They will provide an invaluable resource for practitioners in domestic and international jurisdictions, who are increasingly required to cite and compare authorities from foreign courts, and for policy-makers, academics and researchers. The cases, although often recorded in different national or other law reports, have never before been selected and printed together for ease of reference and comparison in the manner envisaged by the ICLR.
