This treatise on the forms of criminal responsibility arising from violations of international humanitarian law examines the evolution of personal responsibility and its contemporary application to war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. It traces the origin and development of such concepts as direct participation, ordering, complicity and inciting. The work includes extensive analysis of the jurisprudence of the International Criminal Tribunals for Yugoslavia and Rwanda and the International Criminal Court, aswell as a variety of other legal material.
