For over a century states have co-operated in providing evidence for use in civil trials in other countries. The growth of international crimes such as drug-trafficking, money-laundering, terrorism, and insider-trading now pose a substantial threat to the economies and stability of states, andgovernments and international organizations have been quick to expand past experience into a variety of responses - both diplomatic and institutional - to the new international crimes.
