dc.descriptionarticle published in law reviewen_US
dc.description.abstractPart I of this Article discusses the rising number of extradition requests by the United States, the common grounds for denial of extradition, and the controversies that such denials have aroused. Part II examines Soering v. United Kingdom against this background and analyzes its scholarly reception, influence on international and foreign jurisprudence, and lack of effect in the United States. Part III explores the implications of SOERING for defenses to extradition based on prison conditions: whether prison conditions in the United States could conceivably rise to the level of a human rights violation, whether the European Court of Human Rights would ever stop an extradition to the United States on these grounds, and how such a ruling would affect international criminal enforcement policy and prison conditions in the United States.en_US
