What next for the troubled International Criminal Court?

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


The International Criminal Court (ICC) was set up by international agreement in 2002 to prosecute individuals accused of war crimes and crimes against humanity. It was intended to complement, not replace, national criminal systems, prosecuting only when states are unwilling or unable to do so.

At the time, some lauded it as the cornerstone of the emerging system of international justice, but not all countries were keen on the idea of an international war crimes court.
