Description

The establishment of the International Criminal Court (ICC) following the adoption of the Rome Statute in 1998 was, and remains, a significant step in the fight against impunity. To what extent is international criminal justice "international" in the face of the ICC's current work? Does international criminal justice have a future without a broadening of the reach of the ICC?
