States and inter-governmental organisations aware of the implications that this has for the protection of the state and its citizens have over the last fifty or so years adapted and developed the criminal law and its institutions and established the foundations for trans-national responses and interventions. There is now a body of law and practice which can be recognised as trans-national criminal law, which includes within it international criminal law. This is a dynamic and highly important body of law and practice, the impact of which is increasingly significant throughout the world.... [-]
