This chapter talks about crime and prosecution in terms of warfare, specifically the pressures that these create and their changing context. It starts with a description of the various ways that the war laws changed during the twentieth century, before shifting to the development and the history of various war crimes prosecutions. The late 1990s presents the growth of international criminal law, with a focus on international prosecution, which is reviewed in the next section. The chapter also studies the Global War on Terror and its issues, concluding with the argument surrounding the current evolution of the strategic environment.

Keywords:   crime, prosecution, war laws, prosecution, international criminal law, international prosecution, War on Terror, strategic environment
