Product Description

The International Assocation of Prosecutors (IAP) General Council, Barry Hancock, has worked with John Jackson, Dean and Professor of Criminal Law at the School of Law, Unviersity College Dublin, to develop a method of analysing prosecuting services. This is based on the three major international texts for prosecutors - the United Nations Guidelines for Prosecutors (UN Guidelines), the Council of Europe`s Recommendation Rec(2009)19 of the Commission of MInisters to member states on the role of public prosecution in the criminal justice system (Council of Europe Recommendation) and the IAP Standards. In this book they analyse the natioanl prosecution service of Ireland, New South Wales (Australia), the Netherlands and Denmark.

It is a second volume to the book they published in 2006 listing the national prosecution services of the United Kingdom - the Crown Office in Scotland, the Crown Prosecution Services of England and Wales and the Public Prosecution Service for Northern Ireland.

This Publication will add to the understanding among and co-operation between prosecutors around the world. ReadershipPublic prosecutors, judges and defence practitioners, policy makers and academics
