International Co-operation in Civil and Criminal Matters

Εξώφυλλο
Oxford University Press, 2002 - 449 σελίδες
For over a century states have co-operated in providing evidence for use in civil trials in other countries. The growth of international crimes such as drug-trafficking, money-laundering, terrorism, and insider-trading now pose a substantial threat to the economies and stabilities of states,
and governments and international organizations have been quick to expand past civil law experience into a variety of responses - both diplomatic and institutional - to the new international crimes. This new edition draws on recent international events, new legislation, and important developments
under the aegis of the EC, but retains an important awareness of both civil and criminal dimensions. It will be a useful book to litigation professionals, legislators, and policy-makers
