Chapter Summary

Before the 1940's, trends in international human rights, international criminal law and humanitarian law helped develop a rudimentary set of norms, particularly in Europe. These early trends sprang from populist social justice movements and evolving intellectual, religious and social mores. The 1940's saw the landmark intersection of preexisting trends in international human rights, humanitarian and criminal law and provided the bedrock intellectual, legal and historical bases that would incorporate those disparate trends into a collective and vital modern legal rights regime. These advances helped articulate and refine the substantive and procedural guidelines for subsequent international criminal bodies and help drive the revival of the principles of Nuremberg during the 1990's and into the 21st century. The modern international human rights treaty regime has affected international law in more ways than just by growing a sophisticated international jurisprudence, generating more exacting substantive definitions of human rights, and general principles of law.
