Sustainable Development, International Criminal Justice, and Treaty Implementation provides a serious and timely perspective on the relationship between two important and dynamic fields of international law. Comprised of chapters written by leading academics and international lawyers, this book examines how the principles and practices of international criminal law and sustainable development can contribute to one another's elaboration, interpretation, and implementation. Chapters in the book discuss the potential and limitations of international criminalization as a means for protecting the basic foundations of sustainable development; the role of existing international crimes in penalizing serious forms of economic, social, environmental, and cultural harm; the indirect linkages that have developed between sustainable development and various mechanisms of criminal accountability and redress; and innovative proposals to broaden the scope of international criminal justice. With its rigorous and innovative arguments, this book forms a unique and urgent contribution to current debates on the future of global justice and sustainability.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"Sustainable Development, International Criminal Justice, and Treaty Implementation opens new horizons for the international criminal regime … Thanks to the editors and contributors of this book, the question of identifying which precise acts should be defined as new international crimes, based on the gravity of their adverse impacts on sustainable development and the appropriateness of such measure, is resolutely on the agenda for future research and law reform.'

The book convincingly makes the argument for further consideration of international criminal law and sustainable development as two mutually reinforcing fields, and in proposing novel and concrete ideas as to how this can be achieved. The book comprising chapters written by leading academics and international lawyers is an important read for a variety of stakeholders interested in understanding the strengths and weaknesses of international criminalization as a means for protecting sustainable development.
