The Birth of the New Justice

A presentation from Mark Lewis discussing his prizewinning book, The Birth of the New Justice


This presentation from Mark Lewis will discuss his prizewinning book, The Birth of the New Justice, a history of international criminal courts and new international criminal laws from the end of World War I to the beginning of the Cold War. The purpose of these courts was to repress aggressive war, war crimes, terrorism, and genocide. Rather than arguing that these legal projects were attempts by state governments to project a "liberal legalism" and create an international state system that limited sovereignty, Mark Lewis shows that European jurists in a variety of transnational organizations derived their motives from a range of ideological motives - liberal, conservative, utopian, humanitarian, nationalist, and particularist.

Mark Lewis is the winner of the 2013 Fraenkel Prize in Contemporary History Category A for The Birth of the New Justice: The Internationalisation of Crime and Punishment 1919-1950 (Oxford University Press, 2014).
