Status of forces : criminal jurisdiction over military personnel abroad
The Hague : Asser, 2015
XIV, 270 p. : ill., tabl. ; 24 cm
This book brings into focus the legal status of armed forced on foreign territory within, inter alia, the context of multi-national exercises and a variety of so-called crisis management operations. When it comes to criminal offences committed by military personnel while abroad it is important to know whether such offences fall under the criminal jurisdiction of the Sending State or that of the Host State. The book analyses this question from two different perspectives, namely traditional public international law and military operational law.
