Chapter Summary

This chapter briefly analyses the articulation of relevant legal principles by the International Military Tribunal (IMT) at Nuremberg and explains some of the ways in which those same pronouncements are now being applied: in international criminal law by a proliferation of international, hybrid and national courts, including by the United States Supreme Court in relation to the proposed trial by military commission of some of those detained at Guantánamo Bay Naval Base, Cuba; and in relation to the law of military occupation, particularly in the context of the Coalition occupation of Iraq. It focuses on conspiracy as a basis of individual criminal responsibility.

Keywords: crimes against humanity; crimes against peace; economic reform; Hague Regulations; individual criminal responsibility; International criminal law; Iraq; Nuremberg trial; war crimes
