About this Item

Neuware - The 1948 UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide ('Genocide Convention') has a special standing in international law, as well as in international politics. For 60 years the crime of genocide has been recognised as the most horrendous crime in international law, famously designated the 'crime of crimes'. On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of its adoption the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights stated that 'genocide is the ultimate form of discrimination'. In the same context the chief prosecutor at the International Criminal Court described the Genocide Convention as a 'visionary and founding text for the Court'. The Convention has influenced the subsequent development of many different areas of international law. For example, the 1951 Advisory Opinion on the Genocide Convention enabled the International Court of Justice to shape the modern regime of reservations to treaties. More recently the prohibition against genocide has become a crucial pillar of international criminal law, with genocide being one of the core crimes falling under the jurisdiction of the UN ad hoc tribunals, the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, and the permanent International Criminal Court since the 1990s. In this work the provisions of the Convention are analysed article-by-article, including abundant practice and jurisprudence. Distinct sections on cross-cutting issues of general importance complement the analysis. Dr Christian J. Tams is Professor of Inter national Law at the University of Glasgow. He has published widely on various aspects of international law and has been involved in litigation on questions of genocide before the International Court of Justice. Dr Lars Berster is senior research fellow and lecturer in law, Dr Björn Schiffbauer is research fellow, both in the Institute of German and International Criminal Law of the University of Cologne. 468 pp. Englisch.
