Overview

The number of academic writings on international criminal procedure is growing rapidly. Nevertheless, the investigation phase has, so far, received less attention than the trial phase itself. The importance of investigative actions has not yet been reflected upon to a more complete extent. This book seeks to fill the gap. It examines the existing law and practice of the different international(ized) criminal courts and tribunals, with regard to the conduct of investigations, in order to identify any (emerging) rules of international criminal procedure. More precisely, the book questions whether (notwithstanding their nature of 'self-contained regimes') these institutions have adopted certain common rules. Additionally, it examines the fairness of the law and the practice of the different international(ized) criminal courts and tribunals, with regard to the conduct of investigations. (Series: School of Human Rights Research - Vol. 71) [Subject: International Law, Criminal Law, Investigative Procedure]
