This essay examines how the wartime framing Professor Dudziak's book elucidates has impacted the development of international criminal law. It argues that the fiction that time can be divided into "wartime" and "peacetime" has been central to the development of international criminal law. However, the regime's reliance on the war/peace dichotomy has eroded over time.
