This article examines whether there is a need to align the enforcement of international punishment to the objectives governing international criminal justice as a whole and those of international sentencing. It calls for a moderate approach towards the application of the general objectives of international criminal justice to its different stages and components and, more specifically, enforcement. It argues that such application is not based on a thorough understanding of how international criminal justice operates and that such application may put the autonomy of convicted persons at risk.
