Special issues from JICJ

2016 Special Issue: Modern Slavery

The latest special issue is entitled Slavery and the Limits of International Criminal Justice.

According to a recent estimate of the Global Slavery Index, about 45 million people around the world are thought to be enslaved today. Yet slavery is strictly prohibited by international law. Under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, enslavement is, in some cases, prosecutable as a crime against humanity or, arguably in some narrower cases, a war crime. Why is there such a gap between law and practice? This special issue addresses this question, and asks what role international criminal justice can play in bridging the gap.

The issue was guest edited by James Cockayne.
