    Criminological research into state punitiveness has typically focused either on particular local and national environments or on the international comparison of national trends. Whilst both approaches have contributed important insights to the understanding of levels and patterns of punitiveness in various jurisdictions and regions around the world, there has been relatively little appreciation to date of the ways in which the international environment may itself impact upon national-level penal policies and practices. Drawing on theory from International Relations and Sociology, this talk considers how the international as a level of analysis may further criminological understanding of state punitiveness.
