Chapter Summary

Whilst the early system of international criminal law has not directly dealt with the questions of the prohibition of alcohol, there have been certain rules concerning its criminalization under national criminal systems. The process of prohibition, criminalization and restrictive possession of alcohol has, for instance, been very long in the United States. The new development in the system of international law may be examined under the Convention on the Rights of Child which aims to express the negative effect of the consumption of alcohol by parents and to impose certain measures on the contracting parties to forbid access to alcohol for children under the age of 16. The criminalization of alcoholic drinks is one of the most well-known characterizations of Islamic law.
