Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an analysis, with appropriate quotations, of provisions of some multilateral conventions of worldwide scope whose purposes are to prevent or repress specific categories of offenses. Such conventions contain rules on extradition and deal with narcotics, genocide, unlawful acts against the safety of civil aviation, terrorism, physical protection of nuclear material and other subjects. In Article I of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, approved by the United Nations General Assembly on December 9, 1948 the Contracting Parties confirm that genocide, committed in time of peace or in time of war, is a crime under international law which they undertake to prevent and punish. According to Article III the following acts are punishable: (a) genocide; (b) conspiracy to commit genocide; (c) direct and public incitement to commit genocide; (d) attempt to commit genocide; (e) complicity in genocide.
