Defending the Society of States

Jason Ralph (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines how criminal justice helps to construct society by reaffirming common values at the moment they meet with opposition. It also introduces the English School approach to the study of international society and it describes how it provides a useful framework for analysing the issues raised by the International Criminal Court. The chapter clarifies the use of the pluralist and solidarist labels at the heart of the English School research agenda, summarises the main arguments of the book and sets out the chapter outline.

Keywords:   criminal justice, English School, pluralist, solidarist, international society, International Criminal Court
