Handbook on the Rule of Law

Edited by Christopher May and Adam Winchester

The discussion of the norm of the rule of law has broken out of the confines of jurisprudence and is of growing interest to many non-legal researchers. A range of issues are explored in this volume that will help non-specialists with an interest in the rule of law develop a nuanced understanding of its character and political implications. It is explicitly aimed at those who know the rule of law is important and while having little legal background, would like to know more about the norm.

Chapter 27: The rule of law and terrorism

Clive Walker


This chapter invites a reading of the international rule of law as a marketing tool. Its rhetorical purchase is shown to provide fertile ground for branding, employed as a means to attract resources in a highly competitive industry – what I call the ‘global justice sector’. The practices of the International Criminal Court, one of those institutions competing in this sector, exemplify the employment of the international rule of law in its marketised form as a means to strengthen its global justice brand. This reading of the international rule of law is placed within the context of a neoliberalism which constitutes and reconstitutes the juncture between the market and justice.
