   schema:description "This book examines international political order in the post-Cold War era, arguing that this order has become progressively more punitive. This is seen as resulting from both a human rights regime that emphasizes legal norms and the aggressive policies of the United States and its allies in the "War on Terror". While punishment can play a key role in creating justice in a political system, serious flaws in the current global order militate against punishment-enforcing global norms. The book argues for necessary presence of three key concepts - justice, authority and agency - if punishment is to function effectively, and explores four practices in current international system: intervention, sanctions, counter terrorism policy, and war crimes tribunals. It suggestes ways to revise current global political structure in order to enable punitive practices to play a more central role in creating a just world order--Publisher's description."@en ;
