Example text

The “messages” sent by law and the legal processes contain factual information about what would be risked by disobedience, but they also contain proclamations specifying that it is wrong to disobey. In other words, general prevention consists of both deterrence through fear of punishment and the moral influence of punishment as an expression of social disapproval. , 36. 51 3 The core elements of international crimes On 22 April 1915, German troops stationed on the Ypres Salient in Belgium made the first concerted use of a new weapon.

Or that this perception of the crime is a gross oversimplification of a far more complex issue? And could it be that emphasizing the distinctiveness of genocide may actually undermine the very progress and justice that international law intends to achieve? For some, these questions may border on the international law equivalent of blasphemy. But, as this book attempts to convey, they are questions essential to a better understanding of our faith in global justice. The exploration of this theme must first consider whether genocide is, in fact, the ultimate crime.

Determining a hierarchy of crimes – even to ordinary crimes such as murder and rape in domestic law – has left many a jurist perplexed. Comparing the gravity of international crimes is even more perplexing, given the complexity of their elements. The landmark 1977 case of Coker v. Georgia provides a valuable illustration of such an exercise in establishing a hierarchy of crimes, and a useful point of contrast with the debate concerning the gravity of genocide relative to other international crimes.
