Legality and Fair Labelling in International Criminal Law
Author: Talita Dias
This book explores how the principles of legality and fair labelling have developed in international criminal law, from Nuremberg to the International Criminal Court and beyond. It features a comprehensive survey of domestic and international case law, treaties, and other materials, carefully unpacking the different rationales and elements of each principle and the various rules to which they apply. The book invites you to revisit landmark cases, such as those involving atrocities in the Former Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Darfur, and Palestine, through a distinctive lens: the finding that all rules substantively affecting the human rights of the accused – from crimes and penalties to labels – must be sufficiently accessible and foreseeable to the ordinary person.
An Ethnomethodological Investigation into the Production and Assessment of Legal Targeting
The book provides an empirical account of the laws that regulate today’s scenes of armed conflict by looking into the details of one particular military incident and its ex-post legal accounting. Empirically, the book focuses on a highly controversial airstrike in Afghanistan (2009), in which large numbers of civilians were identified as combatants and killed as such. The incident lends itself to reflect upon the relation between the violation of procedural rules and the violation of the international laws of armed conflict. The ethnomethodological Law-in-Action research investigates the practical details of legal accountability and explores how the event shaped and specified the legally required protection of civilians in armed conflict. Exploring the collaborative and systematic work that goes into the ‘application of law’ at the military and the judiciary site, the study develops an empirical respecification of the concept of ‘juridification of warfare’.

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.

This volume describes the procedures governing the transfer of sentenced foreign nationals from the United States to serve the remainder of their sentences in their native countries, and of United States nationals sentenced in foreign countries to serve the remainder of their sentences in the United States. It discusses the statutory and treaty framework regulating the transfer of sentenced persons to and from the United States, as well as the case law interpreting those statutes and treaties. Appendices contain United States statutes and regulations, U.S. Department of Justice Manual materials, and all treaties governing the transfer of prisoners to and from the United States.

Examining the legality of foreign military intervention in internal conflicts with the consent of the government, this book gives and analyses a to-the-point account of post-Cold War State practice with more than 45 incidents of such interventions on a scale neglected in current scholarship. Owing to this account, it also manages to engage in peripheral aspects of the subject overlooked in the literature, such as the impact of an ineffective arms embargo on a consensual intervention, or the consequences of the invocation by an intervening State of both consent and its right to self-defence. The book also examines, among others, the issue of the legal legitimacy and recognition of governments, the rules that can considerably constrain the scope of consensual interventions under certain circumstances, and the challenging and under-addressed implications of consensual interventions for the crime of aggression.
