Product Description

Over the last quarter of a century a new system of global criminal justice has emerged. But how successful has it been? Are we witnessing a new era of cosmopolitan justice or are the old principles of victors’ justice still in play? In this book, Daniele Archibugi and Alice Pease offer a vibrant and thoughtful analysis of the successes and shortcomings of the global justice system from 1945 to the present day.

 Part I traces the evolution of this system and the cosmopolitan vision enshrined within it. Part II looks at how it has worked in practice, focusing on the trials of some of the world’s most notorious war criminals, including Augusto Pinochet, Slobodan Milošević, Radovan Karadžić, Saddam Hussein and Omar al-Bashir, to assess the efficacy of the new dynamics of international punishment and the extent to which they can operate independently, without the interference of powerful governments and their representatives. Looking to the future, Part III asks how the system’s failings can be addressed. What actions are required for cosmopolitan values to become increasingly embedded in the global justice system in years to come?

Product Reviews


"If you are able to read only one book on international criminal justice let it be Crime and Global Justice. Brilliantly presented, lucidly reasoned, and remarkably balanced, it is certain to be an enduring scholarly contribution."Richard A. Falk, Princeton University Crime and Global Justice is a really good book. It combines an incredibly useful and readable introduction to the subject, a powerful critique of how it has worked in practice, and a message of hope for the future. A fundamental text for anyone who cares about the prospects for an international rule of law." Mary Kaldor, London School of Economics and Political Science“Both well-written and thorough…A timely reminder that the current international justice regime has not offered a silver bullet for complex political problems.”LSE Review of Books
