The main research areas of the Chair, held by Prof. Dr. Kai Ambos since June 2003, in addition to the classical areas such as general criminal law and criminal procedure, involve international criminal law – especially the areas of national jurisdiction, international criminal law and European criminal law – as well as comparative law (albeit focusing mainly on Spanish and Portuguese speaking as well as Common Law areas). In order to be able to research the topics mentioned above adequately, a “Library for Foreign and International Criminal Law and Procedure” has been established. This library belongs to the Department of Foreign and International Criminal Law, led by Prof. Dr. Kai Ambos, and is part of the Criminal Law Library of the Faculty of Law. Meanwhile, the Library has developed into a center for research dealing with foreign and international criminal law matters
