Abstract

The chapter defines 'principles' and 'general rules' of international criminal procedure and addresses their legal nature and systemic functions within that body of law. Being a precursor to the research carried out by the International Expert Framework for International Criminal Procedure and published in a volume 'International Criminal Procedure: Principles and Rules' (OUP, 2013), the chapter makes a case for the systematization of these standards of procedure in international and hybrid criminal courts and lays the methodological groundwork.

Keywords: international criminal procedure, principles, rules, sources of law, fragmentation, indeterminacy
