About the Authors
  • Based on extensive empirical research, this groundbreaking book describes and analyses existing systems for enforcing sentences of imprisonment imposed by international criminal courts and makes recommendations for the strategic and structural development of the international penal system. In particular, it advocates a resocialisation-focused international penal policy delivered using restorative justice modalities post-conviction and the creation of an accountable international prison system. Singly or combined, these developments will contribute to the institutionalisation of the international penal system and enhance the international nature of the sanction, the international control over the way international punishment is enforced and the equal treatment of international prisoners. These developments will also help to ensure that international punishment is principled and progressive and implemented in a humane and effective system.

    • Comprehensive discussion of the governing legal and regulatory frameworks enables the reader to access information about an under-documented system which is of vital importance for the international criminal justice process
    • Empirical research sheds light on the operation and oversight of the international penal system at a time when very little is known beyond the sparse legal frameworks and the limited jurisprudence that has been made public
    • Provides innovative recommendations concerning the development of international penal strategy and structure which will assist international criminal courts, oversight bodies and enforcing states and institutions
