Jones on Extradition is considered the leading work on extradition and describes comprehensively the extradition arrangements between the UK and other countries. It deals with both extradition and international mutual assistance in criminal matters, how they relate to each other, and how they are applied in specific situations, covering both theory and practice.

This new edition examines the huge body of recent case law under the Extradition Act 2003 – including many House of Lords and Supreme Court decisions – and amendments to the Act itself, explores the impact of recent bilateral extradition treaties, and discusses development of the European Arrest Warrant.

  • Makes clear what extradition arrangements apply to specific countries
  • Explains where bars to extradition may apply and suggests how extradition may be challenged

  • Covers the important human rights aspects of the subject
  • Considers EU topics such as the Eurowarrant
  • Includes an expanded section on international crimes and immunities
