Overview

The provisions of the 1948 Genocide Convention are now being interpreted in important judgments by the International Court of Justice, the ad hoc Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda, and increasingly in domestic courts. In this definitive work William A. Schabas gives detailed attention to the concept of protected groups, the quantitative dimension of genocide, problems of criminal prosecution, and issues of international judicial cooperations such as extradition. He explores the duty to prevent genocide, and the consequences this may have on the emerging law of humanitarian intervention.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book includes a useful appendix of the three principal drafts of the Genocide Convention, as well as a truly amazing bibliography. It will undoubtedly become one of the definitive references on genocide in international law and the Genocide Convention." Journal of International Law and Politics

"...Schabas skillfully identifies ambiguities and uncertainties in the Genocide Convention and starkly sketches the demands and difficulties of satisfying the requisite legal standard." Human Rights Quarterly

"this book will prove to be a welcome addition to the library of any genocide scholar and international legal practitioner...The author has hit on the main point that a lawyer would analyze in undertaking an examination of allegations of genocide." H-Net Reviews Jan 2002
