9780521840798: Crimes against Humanity: A Normative Account (Cambridge Studies in Philosophy and Law)

This analysis of the philosophical foundations of international criminal law focuses on the moral, legal, and political questions that arise when individuals who commit collective crimes, such as crimes against humanity, are held accountable by international criminal tribunals. These tribunals challenge one of the most sacred prerogatives of states--sovereignty--and breaches to this sovereignty can only be justified in limited circumstances. The book should appeal to students of international law, political philosophy, international relations, and human rights theory.
