This volume examines lessons learned in over two decades of ICC practice. It discusses macro issues, such as universality, selectivity, new technologies, complementarity, victims and challenges in the life cycle of cases, as well as ways to re-think the ICC regime in light of the Independent Expert Review, aggression against Ukraine, and novel global challenges.
It is statistically unlikely that humans are the only intelligent species in the universe. Nothing about the others will be known until contact is made beyond a radio signal from space that merely tells us they existed when it was sent. That contact may occur tomorrow, in a hundred years, or never. If it does it will be a high-risk scenario for humanity. It may be peaceful or hostile. Relying on alien altruism and benign intentions is wishful thinking. We need to begin identifying as a planetary species, and develop a global consensus on how to respond in either scenario.
This book brings together prominent scholars in the fields of international cultural heritage law and heritage studies to scrutinise the various branches of international law and governance dealing with heritage destruction from human rights perspectives, both in times of armed conflict as well as in peace. Importantly, it also examines cases of heritage destruction that may not be intentional, but rather the consequence of large-scale infrastructural development or resource extraction. Chapters deal with high profile cases from Europe, North Africa, The Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean, with a substantial afterword on heritage destruction in Ukraine.
The Annotated Digest of the International Criminal Court is an annual or biennial series, which compiles a selection of the most significant legal findings rendered in public decisions of the International Criminal Court. It is devised, first and foremost, as a reference tool for academics and practitioners of international criminal law to enable efficient and thorough research of ICC jurisprudence.

Abstracts of the legal findings are selected based on the following criteria:
1) clarification or interpretation of a rule or a point of law;
2) application of a specific rule as applied by a Chamber; or
3) findings or rulings which are otherwise meaningful with respect to international justice, human rights, international humanitarian law.

Each abstract is inserted after the article(s) of the Statute, Rules of Procedure and Evidence and Regulations of the Court to which it corresponds, together with a short description or summary of its relevance. This quick reference system makes it easy to refer to other decisions quoted elsewhere in the Digest.

The series published one volume over the last 5 years.

Published under the Transnational Publishers imprint. This series has been discontinued. The follow up series is the International Criminal Law Series.


The paper reflects on the value of linking criminological research on atrocity with that on serious economic crime. The two areas of criminological research are outlined briefly, before common challenges around complexity and interdependence are set out. An example of a criminal career encompassing both atrocity and serious economic criminality is put forward to support claims that atrocity and economic crime can usefully be studied together. Three further examples of research are discussed to show the possible merits of bringing together two criminological strands. Ultimately, studying the two forms of criminality together would respect the lived experience of victims, who see firsthand how atrocity and serious economic crime go hand in hand.

While about 1,900 Dutch prisoners are detained abroad annually, current knowledge on this group of prisoners is often limited to descriptions about their background characteristics and conditions in foreign detention. Previous research has highlighted the relatively high average age of Dutch prisoners at entrance in foreign detention. The current study examines whether reoffending behavior differs across three groups of prisoners: younger prisoners (aged between 18–30 years), middle-aged prisoners (aged between 31–45 years), and older prisoners (46 years or older). Using registration and reconviction data, the results demonstrate that middle-aged prisoners form the largest group. Furthermore, the results indicate that younger prisoners are more likely to reoffend after release from foreign detention compared to other subgroups.
