Globalizing legal process in the struggle to counter impunity efficiently

Rosemary Byrne

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Globalization often serves as a perfunctory point of reference for positioning the development of international courts and tribunals (ICTs). The dominant scholarship in international law engages almost exclusively with formal law. This chapter argues that globalization-focused research can provide critical insights into how international justice can be delivered more efficiently. Empirical data illustrate the implications of the roles adopted by professionals in the courtroom and suggest how they can be adapted in future reforms to enhance trial efficiency. The conclusion argues that the observation of trial practice through the lens of international integration can oil the slow wheels of justice.
