International criminal justice as a discipline throws up numerous conceptual issues, engaging disciplines such as law, politics, history, sociology, psychology to name but a few. This book addresses themes around international criminal justice from a mixture of traditional and more radical perspectives. While law, and in particular international law, is at the heart of much of the discussion around this topic, history, sociology and politics are invariably infused and, in some aspects of international criminal justice, are predominant elements. Fundamentally the exploration concerns questions of coherence and legitimacy, which are foundational to both the content and application of the discipline, and the book charts an illuminating path through these diverse perspectives. The contributions in this book come from some of the eminent scholars and practitioners in the area, and will provide some profound insight into and an enriched understanding of international criminal justice, helping to advance the field of study.This ambitious and necessary book will appeal to academics and students of international criminal law, international criminal justice, international law, transitional justice, comparative criminal law, as well as practitioners of international criminal law.
