Translated title:
The defense of superior orders in international criminal law
Summary:
This paper discusses whether superior orders can be an applicable defence, capable of relieving from criminal responsibility, through surveying the various theoretical approaches of the issue and shedding light to each ones practical and dogmatical advantages and disadvantages. The superior orders defence is seen in the light of case law that has helped form the relative international customary law and through the Statute of the International Criminal Court which adresses the matter in article 33. Superior orders are also discussed in relation to other defences.
