New York ; London : Routledge, 2016
Jackson Nyamuya Maogoto provides an overview of the development of international tribunals in the twentieth century. The primary pivot of his chapter is discussion of the extension of jurisdictional bases that circumvented aspects of statist based criminal jurisdiction through international courts and tribunals. Maogoto focuses on the concept of sovereign immunity while extending universal jurisdiction into the sphere of national criminal jurisdiction through the framework of international crimes.
