This anthology brings together legal and philosophical theorists to examine the normative and conceptual foundations of international criminal law. In particular, through these essays the international group of authors addresses questions of state sovereignty; of groups, rather than individuals, as perpetrators and victims of international crimes; of international criminal law and the promotion of human rights and social justice; and of what comes after international criminal prosecutions, namely, punishment and reconciliation. International criminal law is still an emerging field, and as it continues to develop, the elucidation of clear, consistent theoretical groundings for its practices will be crucial. The questions raised and issues addressed by the essays in this volume will aid in this important endeavor.

International Criminal Law Review
'International Criminal Law and Philosophy raises fundamental questions and examines novel issues in the merging field of international criminal law. ... May and Hoskins have provided a valuable contribution to current multidisciplinary debates on international criminal law.' The Journal of Ethics and International Affairs
'International Criminal Law and Philosophy is a thought-provoking and valuable collection of essays, all of which are intended to examine both the conceptual and normative grounding of international criminal law, which is supposedly individual responsibility for mass atrocities ... Readers interested in legal theory generally or challenges to international criminal law specifically would have the most to gain from this material ...' Dr Edwin Bikundo, Current Issues in Criminal Justice
