Hard and soft law developed by international and regional organizations, transgovernmental networks, and international courts increasingly shape rules, procedures, and practices governing criminalization, policing, prosecution, and punishment. This dynamic calls into question traditional approaches that study criminal justice from a predominantly national perspective, or that dichotomize the study of international from national criminal law. Building on socio-legal theories of transnational legal ordering, this book develops a new approach for studying the interaction between international and domestic criminal law and practice. Distinguished scholars from different disciplines apply this approach in ten case studies of transnational legal ordering that address transnational crimes such as money laundering, corruption, and human trafficking, international crimes such as mass atrocities, and human rights abuses in law enforcement.

The book provides a comprehensive treatment of the changing transnational nature of criminal justice policymaking and practice in today's globalized world.

  • Develops and applies a new theoretical framework for studying the interactions between international and domestic processes of criminal justice policy
  • Maps and explains similarities and differences in the formation, institutionalization, and impact of transnational norms in various areas of criminal justice policy
  • Features ten in-depth case studies of transnational legal ordering in central fields of criminal justice policy
