International law is generally understood as consisting of the norms and rules governing relations among nations, leaving many people questioning whether it is really "law" at all. The war crimes trials following World War II brought sanctions to bear on individuals and opened the door for application of other norms in addition to the law of war. In a globalized socioeconomic setting, there are numerous areas of criminal behavior crossing national borders, such as human trafficking and cyber-crimes, which may be called transnational rather than international crimes. This course explores the background and emerging application of both international and transnational rules and their enforcement.
