Abstract

Who will say that 'genocide is not an ultimate crime'? Here is an author who thinks reasonably different and challenges the authority of such labelling in the international criminal law. He argues that as per taxonomy of crime genocide , as it sounds to be barbarous, monstrous, and as a crime of crimes, can be placed on equal footing with war crimes and crimes against humanity. He questions the jurisprudential veracity and power of the word genocide and argues that its genesis is beyond criminal jurisprudence
