In this foreword, the volume's co-editors recall the claim of Martin Luther King Jr. that ‘the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice’. The foreword summarises this collection's essays by eminent scholars, each contributed in recognition of honouree William A. Schabas. The collection analyses developments respecting global justice in the decades since the end of World War II. The volume discusses institutions such as the United Nations, the European Court of Human Rights, the International Criminal Court, and instruments such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Convention Against Torture, and the Canadian Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms. It examines fits and starts in global justice with regard to many phenomena: peace and war, international crimes, culture, death penalty, environmental degradation, and not least, education and scholarship.

Keywords:   death penalty, culture, crimes against humanity, criminal justice, genocide, human rights, international criminal law, prevention, transitional justice
