Understanding International Criminal Law provides an authoritative, insider's perspective on understanding the jurisdictional and legal challenges associated with an increasing number of cross-border criminal cases. Expert authors discuss the evolution of U.S. enforcement efforts focused on the conduct of domestic entities and individuals, as well as the activities of foreign players. Written by experienced international law practitioners, this book discusses the recent trends, caselaw, and practice strategies impacting international criminal law. It also examines the origins and evolution of international criminal law leading to the creation of the Rome Statute and the International Criminal Court (ICC) – the culmination of the belief that atrocities committed against society whose injuries trespassed geographical boundaries must be prosecuted.
These experts also address issues involving corporate and governmental corruption – both foreign and domestic – and explain how the United States has sought to combat these offenses through its enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). The different niches represented and the breadth of perspectives presented enable readers to get inside some of the great legal minds of today, as these experienced lawyers offer up their thoughts on the keys to success within this rapidly expanding area of law, particularly as our world continues to shrink.
