This paper explores how enforcement of international criminal law currently addresses socioeconomic and environmental crimes. It specifically examines current efforts to promote accountability for: (1) environmental war crimes and (2) property crimes and expropriation. The paper then engages in a normative discussion of whether increased judicialization of environmental war crimes and property crimes is a worthwhile pursuit for those committed to accountability, prevention, transition, and development.
