This innovative book provides an incisive, knowledgeable and comprehensive study of the promises and limitations of the emerging phenomenon of surrender of individuals to international criminal courts, such as the International Criminal Court of the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), the International Criminal Court of Rwanda (ICTR), and the International Criminal Court (ICC). It is the first study on this area.
The author analyses the distinctions and similarities with international extradition norms and persuasively establishes the international legal confinements of the surrender concept and the role of states and NATO-forces within this concept. In developing an international uniform framework for the surrender of individuals to international criminal courts, the author meticulously examines the Statutes of the ICTY, ICTR and ICC as well as their case law on this subject in conjunction with that of the European Court of Human Rights.
