The International Criminal Court ushered in a new era in the protection of human rights. The Court prosecutes genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and the crime of aggression when national justice systems are either unwilling or unable to do so themselves. This fifth edition of the seminal text describes a Court which is no longer in its infancy; the Court is currently examining situations that involve more than twenty countries in every continent of the planet. This book considers the difficulties in the Court's troubled relationship with Africa, the vagaries of the position of the United States, and the challenges the Court may face as it confronts conflicts around the world. It also reviews the history of international criminal prosecution and the Rome Statute. Written by a leading commentator, it is an authoritative and up-to-date introduction to the legal issues involved in the creation and operation of the Court.

Damit hat die Durchsetzung des Volkerstrafrechts auf internationaler Ebene ihren vorlaufigen Hohepunkt erreicht. Die Errichtung des Internationalen Strafgerichtshofs ist das Ergebnis einer langen Entwicklung, welche in dieser Abhandlung nachgezeichnet wird."

Internationale Gerichte in Zeiten globalen Regierens

Internationale Gerichte sind zu multifunktionalen Akteuren des globalen Regierens erstarkt. Das überlieferte Verständnis der internationalen Gerichtsbarkeit, welches diese allein als Instrument der Streitbeilegung in den Händen der Staaten ansieht, ist dieser Entwicklung gegenüber allerdings blind. Armin von Bogdandy und Ingo Venzke legen einen neuen Ansatz vor, der den Funktionen internationaler Rechtsprechung jenseits der Streitbeilegung nachspürt, die internationale Spruchpraxis als Ausübung öffentlicher Gewalt konzipiert und ihre demokratische Rechtfertigung prüft. Dadurch erschließen sie die legitimatorische Problematik und eröffnen zugleich bislang ungesehene Möglichkeiten der Weiterentwicklung internationaler Gerichtsbarkeit.

The International Criminal Court in Search of its Purpose and Identity

The International Criminal Court (ICC) is the first permanent international criminal tribunal, which has jurisdiction over the most serious crimes of concern to the international community as a whole: genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and crime of aggression. This book critically analyses the law and practice of the ICC and its contribution to the development of international criminal law and policy. The book focuses on the key procedural and substantive challenges faced by the ICC since its establishment. The critical analysis of the normative framework aims to elaborate ways in which the Court may resolve difficulties, which prevent it from reaching its declared objectives in particularly complex situations. Contributors to the book include leading experts in international criminal justice, and cover a range of topics including, inter alia, terrorism, modes of liability, ne bis in idem, victims reparations, the evidentiary threshold for the confirmation of charges, and sentencing. The book also considers the relationship between the ICC and States, and explores the impact that the new regime of international criminal justice has had on countries where the most serious crimes have been committed. In drawing together these discussions, the book provides a significant contribution in assessing how the ICC’s practice could be refined or improved in future cases. The book will be of great use and interest to international criminal law and public international law.

In The Death and Life of Great American Cities durchleuchtet Jane Jacobs 1961 die fragwürdigen Methoden der Stadtplanung und Stadtsanierung in Amerika, der "New Yorker" nannte es das unkonventionellste und provozierendste Buch über Städtebau seit langem. Die deutsche Ausgabe wurde schnell auch im deutschsprachigem Raum zu einer viel gelesenen und diskutierten Lektüre. Sie ist jetzt wieder in einem Nachdruck zugänglich, mit einem Vorwort von Gerd Albers (1993), das nach der Aktualität dieser Streitschrift fragt.

The Protection Roles of UN Human Rights Special Procedures

As the system of human rights special procedures goes forward to deal with the continuing and new challenges of human rights protection it is of great value to record and recall the considerable body of practice and precedents they have developed for the protection of human rights since the first special procedure was established in the mid 1960s. That is the particular merit of this path-breaking book. The author, who was one of the pioneers in the establishment and operation of the system of special procedures, tells in this book the story of the establishment, history, operations, successes and challenges of the special procedures through the lens of efforts for international protection. In the introduction he summarises their protection roles, which he sets out further in the substantive chapters. In the conclusion he provides an assessment of their protection roles. He notes that while they contribute greatly, the challenges of international protection are still many, and the author invites the international community to a higher level of protection.
