Globalisation, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice : Theoretical, Comparative and Transnational Perspectives, Hardback Book

Globalisation, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice : Theoretical, Comparative and Transnational Perspectives Hardback

Edited by Valsamis Mitsilegas, Peter Alldridge, Leonidas Cheliotis


The book consists of the keynote papers delivered at the 2012 WG Hart Workshop on Globalisation, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice organised by the Queen Mary Criminal Justice Centre.

The volume addresses, from a cross-disciplinary perspective, the multifarious relationship between globalisation on the one hand, and criminal law and justice on the other hand.

At a time when economic, political and cultural systems across different jurisdictions are increasingly becoming or are perceived to be parts of a coherent global whole, it appears that the study of crime and criminal justice policies and practices can no longer be restricted within the boundaries of individual nation-states or even particular transnational regions.

But in which specific fields, to what extent, and in what ways does globalisation influence crime and criminal justice in disparate jurisdictions?

Which are the factors that facilitate or prevent such influence at a domestic and/or regional level? And how does or should scholarly inquiry explore these themes?

These are all key questions which are addressed by the contributors to the volume.

In addition to contributions focusing on theoretical and comparative dimensions of globalisation in criminal law and justice, the volume includes sections focusing on the role of evidence in the development of criminal justice policy, the development of European criminal law and its relationship with national and transnational legal orders, and the influence of globalisation on the interplay between criminal and administrative law.
