The Globalization of Childhood

The International Diffusion of Norms and Law against the Child Death Penalty

Robyn Linde

  • Presents the first cross-national, comparative study of the child death penalty
  • Contributes to several under-theorized areas of international relations, including the role of children and childhood in the process of state consolidation and the building of international order
  • Explores how human rights norms that begin in one part of the world develop and diffuse, becoming part of international law and institutions.
  • Sheds valuable light on the little explored phenomenon of hegemonic laggards through a case study of the United States
