Bringing International Fugitives to Justice: Extradition and its Alternatives

ISBN13: 9781107129283
To be Published: October 2016
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Country of Publication: UK
Format: Hardback
Price: £80.00

A novel and robust framework for the operational and legal analysis of recovering fugitives abroad, Bringing International Fugitives to Justice addresses how States, working alone, in cooperation, or with third-party intervention, strive to secure the custody of fugitives to bring them to justice - for prosecution or punishment purposes - while evaluating the lawfulness of those pursuit efforts.

The book introduces redefined terms and new concepts to add precision to the discourse; sets forth comprehensive typologies including of extradition arrangements and impediments; and provides a mapping to account for the full range of means and methods - extradition, collateral and remedial approaches to extradition, and full-scale and fallback alternatives to extradition - by which international fugitives can be obtained. The study considers the judicial, diplomatic, and policy consequences of reliance on the full-scale alternatives, proffering recommendations that, if adopted, could facilitate the recovery of fugitives while minimizing associated risks.
