I will never see the world again : the memoir of an imprisoned writer by Ahmet Altan( Book )

5 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Turkish writer Altan wrote a novel about a hero under arrest, awaiting the decision that would determine his future. He did not know he was forseeing his own future-- since 2016 confined in a cell four meters long, imprisoned on absurd, Kafkaesque charges, persecuted during Recep Tayyip Erdogan's oppressive regime. In this memoir, written from his prison cell, Altan reflects on a life whittled down to a courtyard covered by bars, and on the hope and solace a writer's mind can provide, even in the darkest places. -- adapted from front flap and perusal of book
Manual on international courts and tribunals by Ruth Mackenzie( Book )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The dramatic rise in the number of international courts and tribunals and the expansion of their legal powers has been one of the most significant developments in international law of the late 20th century. The emergence of an international judiciary provided international law with a stronger than ever law enforcement apparatus, and facilitated the transformation of many aspects of international relations from being power-based to being law-based. The first edition of the Manual on International Courts and Tribunals, published in 1999, was the first book to survey systematically this new institutional landscape, by describing in an accessible and uniformly structured manner the legal powers and operating procedures of all major international judicial and quasi-judicial bodies. In doing so, it laid the groundwork for comparative study and research of the law and practice of international courts and tribunals - an emerging field of international legal research, which has already spurred a series of publications, conferences and academic courses. This second edition updates the first edition by describing the many legal changes that have taken place in the last decade, including important reforms in the laws and procedures of many international courts and tribunals, relevant developments in their increasingly rich jurisprudence and the creation of new judicial fora. Moreover, it assesses the overall record of these judicial bodies. The data and legal analysis offered in the book provide both practitioners and academics with an important basis of knowledge that will help them better understand the details of international adjudication and its context"--

Justice for crimes against humanity by Mark Lattimer( Book )

21 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this book is to assess recent developments in international law seeking to bring an end to impunity by bringing to justice those accused of war crimes and crimes against humanity. The book was originally conceived while the editors were engaged, in different capacities, in proceedings relating to the detention of Senator Pinochet in London. Recent developments including that case, the trial of former President Miloševic, and the creation of the International Criminal Court, have transformed international criminal law and also sparked vigorous public debate. Under what circumstances can those accused of grave crimes under international law now be brought to justice in national or international courts? When can immunity from jurisdiction still be claimed? In addressing these questions and attempting to clarify the applicable law, this book also acknowledges the wider moral and political questions raised, which in turn will influence the further development of the law

The torture memos : rationalizing the unthinkable by David Cole( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On April 16, 2009, the Justice Department released never-before-seen secret memos describing, in graphic detail, the brutal interrogation techniques used by the CIA under the Bush administration's "war on terror." Now, for the first time, the key documents are compiled in one remarkable volume, showing that the U.S. government's top attorneys were instrumental in rationalizing acts of torture and cruelty ... to authorize what the law absolutely forbids. This collection gives readers an unfiltered look at the tactics approved for use in the CIA's secret overseas prisons ... and at the incredible arguments advanced to give them a green light. Originally issued in secret by the Office of Legal Counsel between 2002 and 2005, the documents collected here have been edited only to eliminate repetition. They reflect, in their own words, the analysis that guided the legal architects of the Bush administration's interrogation policies."--Page 4 of cover
