About International and European Criminal Law
In the wake of increasing globalisation, criminal law has become an internationalised subject. This revised and updated second edition highlights the most important aspects of European and international criminal law in order to provide the reader with a comprehensive, concise and solid introduction to this modern field of law.
The book focuses on:
- Rules determining the exercise of jurisdiction
- 'European Criminal Law' dealing with the question if and how far the EU may create or harmonise criminal law
- Evolution of European Criminal Procedure Law
- Ne bis in idem-principle
- Guarantees under the European Convention of Human Rights
- Principles of International Criminal Law
- Procedures and substantive law of the International Criminal Court (ICC)
Praise for the first edition:
'… it manages to give a good overview without being unduly long. The book is most definitly worth a read even for those with more specific interests in the topics covered, and it will serve well as a textbook….'
Annika Suominen, European Criminal Law Review
'This book is both an outstanding and demanding presentation of international criminal law and its current developments and trends caused by globalisation.'
