This book examines the social dynamics behind the creation of internationalized criminal law. Although the emergence of different forms of international criminal law in the 1990s has been the topic of much academic and legal attention, this book takes the people and practices behind the modern phenomenon of internationalized criminal law, and not the law in itself, as its point of departure.

Examining the diffusion of these practices between international, regional and national contexts, this collection of original research considers the actual functioning of international criminal law developed since the 1990s, as it has evolved and circulated within new social and political contexts. As an analysis of the practices and practitioners of internationalized criminal law, the book thus delivers new and original perspectives on the most recent developments in international criminal justice. It also considers their potential future applications and global impact beyond the international criminal courts.
