  3. Sexual Violence as an International Crime: Interdisciplinary Approaches

    Sexual Violence as an International Crime: Interdisciplinary Approaches

    Book | 1st edition 2013 | World | Anne-Marie de Brouwer, Charlotte Ku, Renée Römkens, Larissa Van Den Herik
    This edited volume will focus on developments in the prosecution of cases of sexual violence in (post-)conflict situations. The prosecution of those cases raises new and challenging questions as to how to build evidence, but also how to address victims’ concerns in that process. It will address innovations and challenges of empirical and other new kinds of social scientific, archival and medical data collection techniques; the development of evidence in relation to charges ranging from sexual violence as a war crime to genocide; and evidentiary and procedural differences and difficulties involved in prosecuting sexual victimization in domestic versus international courts.

  4. Victimological Approaches to International Crimes: Africa

    Victimological Approaches to International Crimes: Africa

    Book | 1st edition 2011 | World | Rianne Letschert, Roelof Haveman, Anne-Marie de Brouwer, Antony Pemberton
    Legal initiatives to prevent genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity have considerable shortcomings in dealing with victims of international crimes. Transcending the disciplinary divisions in the study of victims of international crimes is the main focus of this first volume of essays contributing to developing victimological approaches to international crimes. Focusing on the African continent, scholars from different disciplines review the similarities and differences between victims of ordinary crimes and those of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

  5. Collective Violence and International Criminal Justice

    Collective Violence and International Criminal Justice

    An Interdisciplinary Approach
    Book | 1st edition 2010 | World | Alette Smeulers
    Extreme forms of collective violence such as genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes can endanger international peace and security. They are extremely complex social phenomena and it takes an inter- and multidisciplinary approach to understand the true nature of this type of criminality and to effectively prosecute the perpetrators thereof. This book enhances our knowledge of these complex phenomena and thus contributes to a better and more effective system of international criminal justice.

  6. Supranational Criminology: Towards a Criminology of International Crimes

    Supranational Criminology: Towards a Criminology of International Crimes

    Book | 1st edition 2008 | World | Alette Smeulers, Roelof Haveman
    The study of international crimes, like war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide, deserves to grow into a separate and fully fledged specialization within criminology: supranational criminology. This book aims to repair the fundamental and historical neglect of criminology and to break out of a state of denial by putting international crimes on the criminological agenda.

  7. Supranational Criminal Law: a System Sui Generis

    Supranational Criminal Law: a System Sui Generis

    Book | 1st edition 2003 | World | Roelof Haveman, Olga Kavran, Julian Nicholls
    What exactly is the context in which all aspects of this new field of criminal law have to be interpreted? What does the principle of legality mean in the context of supranational criminal law? Which tradition lies at the basis of this new law system? Is supranational criminal law as it grows the result of a deliberate policy, tending towards a coherent system? Or is it merely the result of crisis management?
