An International Law and International Relations Perspective
In this book contributors engage into the theoretical dialogue about the interplay between terrorism and organized crime. Arguing in favor of its existence, the authors of the book seek to define the phenomenon of ‘organized criminal terrorism’ and examine the appropriateness of the international and regional legal frameworks on terrorism and organized crime to address this unitary criminal phenomenon. The volume reveals similarities and differences between terrorism and organized crime that support views in favor of new international legal instruments and those that defend the current approach to combat organized criminal terrorism. Contributors hope that the book will form the basis for a more informed discussion on the issue.

This book unlocks the look, sound, smell, taste, and feel of justice for massive human rights abuses. Twenty-nine expert authors examine the dynamics of the five human senses in how atrocity is perceived, remembered, and condemned. This book is chockful of images. It serves up remarkably diverse content. It treks around the globe: from Pacific war crimes trials in the aftermath of the Second World War to Holocaust proceedings in contemporary Germany, France, and Israel; from absurd show trials in Communist Czechoslovakia to international courtrooms in Arusha, Phnom Penh, and The Hague. Readers embark on a journey that transcends myriad dimensions, including photographic representations of grandfatherly old torturers in Argentina, narco-trafficking in Mexico, colonialisation in India, disinformation and misinformation pixelated in cyberspace, environmental degradation in Cambodia, militarism in Northern Ireland, and civil rights activism in Atlanta. Sights, Sounds, and Sensibilities of Atrocity Prosecutions reimagines what an atrocity means, reconsiders what drives the manufacture of law, and reboots the role of courtrooms and other mechanisms in the pursuit of justice. It unveils how law translates sensory experience into its procedures and institutions, and how humanistic inputs shape perceptions of right and wrong. This book thereby offers a refreshing primer on the underappreciated role of aesthetics, time, and emotion in the world of law.

Drumbl and Fournet have done us all a great service in knitting together – in a single, powerfully imagined, volume – these essays about how we might experience the institutionalisation of judgment in atrocity trials.

Contributions to this volume offer a unique opportunity to delve into law’s hidden landscape using the primary reality of the five senses.

How to legally assess the situation when humanitarian actors in non-international armed conflicts are arbitrarily denied access to the affected civilian population? The book answers this question from the perspective of the five main actors involved in humanitarian relief in non-international armed conflicts: the affected State, non-State armed groups, humanitarian actors, non-belligerent States and the affected civilian population. It examines the legal regulations and consequences for each of these actors. In doing so, the book not only draws attention to existing legal gaps and challenges, but also encourages readers to rethink outdated legal concepts and discuss new approaches.

The open access publication of this book has been published with the support of the Swiss National Science Foundation.

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.

Le Code annoté de la Cour pénale internationale est une collection dans laquelle, en fonction du nombre de décisions rendues par la Cour dans l’avenir, un nouveau volume sera publié chaque année ou tous les deux ans. Le Code propose une sélection des extraits les plus pertinents des décisions publiques rendues par la Cour. Les extraits proposés ont été sélectionnés sur la base des critères suivants :
1) extraits qui clarifient un point de droit, interprètent l’une des dispositions statutaires de la Cour… ;
2) extraits qui montrent comment une règle spécifique est concrètement appliquée par la Cour ;
3) extraits pertinents du point de vue de l’évolution de la justice internationale, des droits de l’homme, du droit international humanitaire…
Les extraits sont proposés dans leur version française officielle, chaque fois qu’elle est disponible ou dans leur version anglaise originale. Dans tous les cas, un résumé en français identifie de façon claire l’apport de l’extrait par rapport aux critères de sélection. Les extraits sont classifiés par rapport à la disposition statutaire (article du Statut, règle du Règlement de procédure et de preuve, norme du Règlement de la Cour) à laquelle ils se rapportent. Un numéro d’identification rapide facilite le renvoi aux extraits des autres décisions sélectionnés dans le présent volume.
La présente collection de Codes annotés est avant tout conçue comme un outil à l’usage des praticiens du droit pénal international et des universitaires, qui, grâce au numéro d’identification rapide et à l’index thématique, y trouveront le moyen d’identifier immédiatement les extraits les plus pertinents de la jurisprudence de la Cour sur chaque sujet.
