Chapter Summary

The United States had extradition treaties with 112 independent countries. This chapter discusses the types of substantive provisions contained in some or all United States extradition treaties, and is designed to provide the reader with a basic understanding of the scope and operation of those provisions in relation to extradition to the United States. United States extradition treaties contain five basis types of provisions: (1) provisions describing the nature of the obligation undertaken; (2) provisions defining which offenses are extraditable offenses; (3) provisions delineating the scope of the applicability of the treaty; (4) provisions establishing exceptions to the obligation to extradite; and (5) provisions establishing procedural requirements. The chapter discusses the first four types of provisions. It also describes the provisions in United States extradition treaties that regulate the process of requesting, handling, granting, and effecting extradition from a country from which the United States requests extradition.
