Abstract

PROFESSOR CHRISTOPH SAFFERLING’S INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL PROCEDURE (OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS, 2012) is one of the first scholarly attempts to set out in detail the applicable procedure before the International Criminal Court (ICC). Since the early 1990s, there has been a surge in scholarly interventions on international criminal law. The creation of ad hoc international criminal tribunals, the ICC, and other international hybrid institutions has expanded the literature to examine the contours of the substantive legal aspects of international criminal law. As these institutions matured, a new field began to form and push the existing and nascent doctrinal boundaries between public international law (including international human rights and international humanitarian law) and instrumental conceptions of international law.
