Transnational Fugitive Offenders in International Law: Extradition and Other Mechanisms
International Criminal Law has undergone significant recent changes. Transnational Fugitive Offenders reflects the dynamic nature of the subject & keeps readers on the cutting edge of new developments. An ever-increasing number & variety of international agreements & cases has expanded extradition law. The jurisprudence relating to alternative means of rendition has also evolved in different ways in different jurisdictions. Most notably, however, the remit of the subject as a whole has expanded. The concept of international criminal law now has to embrace crimes that occur in no single place, cross-border financial crimes where vast sums of money exist solely in cyberspace & which have connections with financial institutions in several countries. The international community has also established supra-national criminal courts to deal with the aftermath of the wars in the former Yugoslavia & Rwanda. The future will likely bring further changes as well. The permanent International Criminal Court, originally proposed by the International Law Commission, if established by the international community, would, as matters stand in 1998, have jurisdiction over genocide, crimes against humanity & war crimes. The ultimate result may at last be the availability of overarching guidance as to the remit & scope of international criminal law. Those studying extradition law, and/or working with transnational fugitive offenders in any capacity, will find Transnational Fugitive Offenders an important, thought-provoking work on a very dynamic subject.
