"This book sheds light on the present frictions between the AU [African Union], the ICC [International Criminal Court] and the UN [United Nations] Security Council. Eminent experts in the field of international criminal justice, including judges and prosecutors of the ICC and other African judicial bodies, as well as international criminal law scholars, analyze and debate the achievements and shortcomings of interventions by the ICC in Africa. They propose ways in which international courts and domestic courts within and outside of Africa can cooperate and address fundamental issues of international criminal law, such as the implementation of the Rome Statute, deferrals of cases before the International Criminal Court and the prosecution of crimes by third states on the basis of universal jurisdiction"--Back cover.
"This book is based on the conference 'Africa and the International Criminal Court' which the South African-German Centre for Transnational Criminal Justice hosted on 22 and 23 November 2013 in Cape Town"--Page 1.
