Item description for The Emerging System of International Criminal Law:Developments in Codification and Implementation (AAA Yearbooks) by Lyal Sunga...
How far has the world come in creating a system of international criminal law? As global society grows ever more interdependent, international crime is increasingly regarded as a serious threat. Now is the time for the international community to produce more comprehensive solutions to prevent, punish and deter crimes under international law. In this book, the author focuses on recent developments in codification and implementation to evaluate prospects for the emergence of a unified system of international criminal law, characterized by broad and coherent material coverage, as well as fair and effective institutional implementation. To this end, he sketches the normative contours of international criminal law by exploring the history, content and legal status of the relevant norms against the background of the work of the International Law Commission. He then surveys patterns in existing means of implementation at both the inter-State and international levels, examining key issues relating to the acquisition of custody over the alleged offender, the role of the extradition system and the use of international criminal tribunals. Finally, the author identifies the essential properties for the emergence of a good system of international criminal law and locates the development and future prospects of this field within the main historical dynamics of international legal cooperation.
