International criminal justice is sufficiently well established to merit an overview of its origins and institutional development. This paper starts out by identifying the institutional indicia of international criminal justice and their close connection to the development of international human rights protections. Underlying these structural and process signposts is some controversy regarding their motivations. Has formal international criminal justice emerged in response to novel and genuine concerns for the safety of humanity, or is it a manifestation of global governance priorities in post conflict scenarios, regional and international?
