Abstract

The twin concepts of globalisation and exceptionalism appear antithetical. Globalisation implies degrees of convergence. Exceptionalism connotes difference and diversity. But both are routinely employed to describe contemporary trajectories in international criminal justice. ...

This chapter explores the theoretical origins of these sensitising concepts and examines their adequacy, either singly or jointly, as tools in unravelling the complexities of national and international criminal justice policy formulation, exchange, reform and implementation.
