Crime and Justice in International Society
Edited by Willem de Lint, Marinella Marmo, Nerida Chazal
Published May 15th 2013 by Routledge – 256 pages
Increasingly, the paradigm of international crime and justice is being used to understand and regulate international society, as evidenced by the growing use of legal discourse to describe and deal with war and conflict, as well as by a recent proliferation of international criminal justice mechanisms. However, criminology has yet to fully explore international criminal justice, with most existing research on international crime and justice taking an international law or international relations perspective. This book will provide a criminological discussion of the aims, theories and justifications associated with the international criminal justice paradigm in order to explore the production, representation and role of crime in the emerging international order.
