- the forms and modes of criminal responsibility; and
- the main issues related to the prosecution and punishment of international crimes at the national and international level, including amnesties, statutes of limitations and immunities.
Cassese guides the reader through a vast array of cases and materials from a number of jurisdictions, providing thought-provoking analysis that brings the political and human contexts to the fore.
The International Criminal Court and all the other modern international criminal courts are fully covered, both as regards their structure, functioning and proceedings and as far as their case law is concerned.
