Product description


... meticulously and comprehensively navigates the discourse over a nation-state's authority to prosecute an alleged international criminal ... I am unaware of any other study of universal jurisdiction offering as extensive a compilation and critique of the relevant domestic law. (The American Journal of International Law)

... a sober-minded treatise that maps out the present doctrine of universal jurisdiction as practised by a number of leading Western states. (Times Literary Supplement)

... the first full-length monograph in English on this controversial area of law ... there is a great deal to admire in this book. The amount of research is highly impressive. By bringing to light a number of national cases of the prosecution of international crimes, and including translated extracts from those cases in the work, Reydams has assisted scholars a great deal. (Journal of Conflict & Security Law)

Luc Reydams is Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Notre Dame.
