It is estimated that in the course of a year approximately 10 million people will pass through pre-trial detention. Although no adequately functioning criminal justice system can presently do entirely without detaining any suspects, pre-trial detention thus remains problematic in the context of human rights, the detainee's family and society. This volume therefore offers a wide variety of topics that are relevant to pre-trial detention. Themes discussed are, for instance: developments that affect the application of pre-trial detention; relevant international and national human rights standards as well as monitoring systems; pre-trial detention of specific groups, and alternatives to pre-trial detention. Moreover, this volume contains chapters on 21 individual countries from around the world. On the basis of these, this volume not only examines whether and how international human rights standards on detention are influencing national law and practice, and the extent to which international norms are suitable to do so, it also intends to reveal strengths and weaknesses of domestic law systems as such. L'on estime que chaque annee, pres de 10 millions de personnes feront l'objet d'une detention avant jugement. Si aucun systeme de justice penale efficace ne peut totalement faire l'impasse sur la detention des suspects, la detention avant jugement reste problematique, tant dans l'optique des droits de l'homme que pour la famille du detenu et la societe. Le present volume aborde des lors de nombreux sujets lies a la detention avant jugement. Sont evoques entre autres themes : les developpements qui affectent l'application de la detention avant jugement; les normes internationales et nationales des droits de l'homme pertinentes, ainsi que les mecanismes de controle; la detention avant jugement des groupes specifiques et les alternatives a la detention avant jugement. Ce volume compte des chapitres consacres a 21 pays individuels dans le monde entier. Le present volume ne se limite donc pas a examiner si les normes internationales des droits de l'homme influencent le droit et la pratique nationale, si oui, dans quelle mesure, et en quoi ces normes sont adequates pour ce faire, il tend egalement a mettre en avant les points forts et les points faibles des systemes juridiques nationaux.
