The boundaries between core crimes and transnational crimes are blurring. Should prosecution and trial of transnational crimes be transferred from national to international jurisdictions? Or should criminal law repression in respect of such crimes remain the prerogative of the state? Cutting edge contributions to this book demonstrate that there is no 'one size fits all' answer to these questions. Addressing the distinctions and commonalities of transnational and international crimes, eminent contributors discuss the implications of this relationship in the realm of law enforcement.

This book critically reflects on the connection between 'core crimes' of the International Criminal Court including; war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide, aggression, and several newly emerging transnational crimes. In view of this gradual merger of the categories, one of the major questions is whether the distinction in legal regime is still warranted. Significantly, the human rights consequences of transnational criminal law enforcement are brought to attention in this timely study.

Academics and students of law, officials, policy makers and practicing criminal lawyers, will all greatly benefit from the crucial insight into the future of handling transnational crime.
