This chapter examines the function and development of extradition in the pursuit of a ‘no-hiding place’ strategy for alleged transnational criminals and fugitives. It begins by discussing the nature of the legal basis for extradition. The main focus is on the conditions for and bars to extradition including human rights bars. It then looks at future developments in the law of extradition. Finally, the chapter introduces those situations where the law fails and states engage in alternatives to extradition such as abduction, deportation, and extraordinary rendition.
