The Crime of Conspiracy in International Law

Author: Thabiso Williams

Name of Book: The Crime of Conspiracy in In-ternational Law
Author of Book: Juliet Okoth
Year: 2014
Publisher: TMC Asser Press

This book looks at the relevance of conspiracy in international criminal law.

It establishes that conspiracy was introduced into international criminal law for purposes of prevention and to combat the collective nature of participation in commission of international crimes. Its use as a tool of accountability has, however, been affected by conflicting conceptual perceptions of conspiracy from common law and civil law countries. This book creates a case for inclusion in the Rome Statute, punishment of conspiracies involving international crimes that do not extend beyond the conceptual stage, to reinforce the Statute’s purpose of prevention.  

Juliet was part of the inaugural LLM group at the South African-German Centre for Transnational Criminal Justice at UWC in 2009. She graduated with an LLM degree at the March 2010 Graduation ceremony. She was accepted into the Centre’s PhD programme and did most of her research at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in Germany. She graduated with her PhD degree at the September Graduation in 2012.
