Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Defenses in Contemporary International Criminal Law contains the table of contents, table of abbreviations, biographical note, preface, foreword, acknowledgements and introduction. The book explores the elements and scope of defenses to international war crimes indictments. The first section of the book investigates the sources and content of international criminal law (ICL) defenses. The second section deals with the application of criminal law defenses in armed conflicts, especially in the course of multinational military operations, a still-evolving aspect of ICL. The final section describes the procedural and methodological aspects of ICL defenses and considers the importance of the (international) rule of law and its implications for defenses to international criminal litigation. This analysis leads to the establishment of a concept or principle of international due process, to be maintained not only by international criminal courts but also by international criminal defense lawyers and prosecutors.

Keywords: defenses; international criminal law (ICL); international war crimes indictments
