Hierarchy of Rules on International Judicial Cooperation: The Law of Bosnia and Herzegovina

Anton Girginov


This study is focused on the law of Bosnia and Herzegovina with its specific problems in international judicial cooperation in criminal matters. In the international law, hierarchy of interstate agreements is accepted and recognized, although, in practice, it is not always understood in the best way. Therefore, as in the case of Bosnia and Herzegovina, domestic law is subsidiary in cases of conflicts with interstate agreements. Nevertheless, it plays an irreplaceable role, as a regulator of international judicial cooperation in support of interstate agreements by interpreting their provisions. This power of national legal provisions must be properly used.
