International Crimes: Law and Practice: Volume I: Genocide

Guénaël Mettraux


This book is the first of a four-volume compendium, which is a detailed and authoritative account of the law of international crimes. The volume provides a unique blend of academic rigour and an insight into the practice of international criminal law. The compendium is un-rivalled in its breadth and depth, covering almost a century of legal practice, dozens of jurisdictions (national and international), thousands of decisions and judgments and hundreds of cases. It discusses in detail the law of all four core international crimes (genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, aggression), their definitions, elements, normative status, and relationship to one another. It provides an exceptional and un-surpassed review of the relevant jurisprudence and material, making it a must-have for any practitioner or scholar in the field.
