Journal of International Criminal Law (JICL)

 The dynamic evolution of international criminal law as an area that intersects various branches and levels of law requires careful examination and interpretation. The need to scrutinize the origins, nature, and purpose of international criminal law is also evident in the light of its interdisciplinary characteristics. International criminal law norms and practices are shaped by various factors that further challenge any claims about the law’s distinctiveness. The crime vocabulary too may reflect interdisciplinary synergies that draw on domains that often have been separated from law, according to legal doctrine. Talk about “ecocide” is just one example of such a trend that necessitates a rigorous analysis of law per se as well as open-minded assessment informed by other sources, e.g. political science, philosophy, and ethics. Yet other emerging developments concern international criminal justice, especially through innovative contributions to enforcement strategies and restorative justice. The tensions that arise from a description of preferences and priorities make it appropriate to create a platform for dialogue across different cultures, in particular, as a consequence of the United Nations push for global imperatives. With special expertise in manuscripts written in Persian, the JICL is in a unique position to handle publications that address Iran. The JICL also is an outlet for research on the development of international criminal law in Asia. As a scholarly outlet, the JICL welcomes high-quality submissions on both traditional and less traditional themes, topics, and issues. These include but are not limited to:

A) the substantive and procedural aspects of international criminal law;

B) the jurisprudence of international criminal courts/tribunals;

C) mutual effects of public international law, international relations, and international criminal law;

D) relevant case-law from national criminal jurisdictions;

E) Criminal law and international human rights;

F) European Union or EU criminal law (which includes financial violations and transnational crimes);

G) domestic policy that affects international criminal law and international criminal justice;

H) New technologies and international criminal justice;

I) different country-specific approaches toward international criminal law and international criminal justice;

J) historical accounts that address the international, regional, and national levels; and

K) holistic research that makes use of political science, sociology, criminology, philosophy of law, ethics, and other disciplines that can inform the knowledge basis for scholarly dialogue.
