The purpose of this series—International Justice and Human Rights
In the post-Cold War era, the emphasis has been shifting from national security to human security, and toward greater accountability in international relations, as evinced by, among other developments, the ongoing international criminalization of human rights violations. The International Justice and Human Rights series proposes to document this evolution in rigorous detail, focusing on the processes associated with the pursuit of justice in international society, the key actors and institutions involved, and the normative as well as policy considerations that shape their actions.
Titles will critically examine the effectiveness of current justice systems, new opportunities for addressing longstanding challenges, the interplay between domestic and international justice options, the role of social justice movements and non-judicial initiatives, and the collective impact of all entities involved in creating a more humane and peaceful world. By analyzing core issues in the quest for justice and in the advancement of human rights norms and standards from an international perspective, this series will record the history and potential of a field that has immediate significance. The editor invites contributions from scholars in the humanities, social sciences, legal, and interdisciplinary fields, and from seasoned practitioners. This series aims both at showcasing cutting-edge research in this critical issue area, and at being relevant to frontline practitioners from governmental/intergovernmental agencies and NGOs.
