Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the modalities of international cooperation in penal matters. It provides some recommendations designed to enhance the effectiveness of international cooperation in penal matters. The duty to prosecute or extradite should be deemed a civitas maximas, not only because it reflects the need for the international legal system to be effective, but also because world states face a certain vulnerability presented by the harmful conduct of international, transnational, and domestic criminality. The central position that the individual has come to assume in the current global legal order has led to an expansion of the international systems safeguarding human rights, with a consequent evolution in enforcement mechanisms. The chapter provides a brief outline of the major innovations that have occurred in the area of cooperation between law enforcement and intelligence since September 11, 2001.
