Sinopsis

This book is concerned with the commercial exploitation of armed conflict; it is about money, war, atrocities and economic actors, about the connections between them, and about responsibility. It aims to clarify the legal framework that defines these connections and gives rise to criminal or, in some instances, civil responsibility, referring both to mechanisms for international criminal justice, such as the International Criminal Court, and domestic systems. It considers which economic actors among individuals, businesses, governments and States should be held accountable and before which forum. Additionally, it addresses the question of how to recover illegally acquired profits and redirect them to benefit the victims of war. The chapters shine a critical light on the options provided by a network of laws to ensure that the ´great industrialists´ of our time, who find economic opportunities in the war-ravaged lives of others, are unable to pursue those opportunities with impunity.

Analyses a developing area and will appeal to scholars and practitioners seeking a one-stop guide to a broad topic
Features contributions from both academics and practitioners and is intended to guide practice by including chapters by those with a wealth of experience of the practical context and challenges
Aims to bring together discrete areas of study, demonstrating the connections between themes
