This introductory chapter sets out the aims and subject matter of the book. In the first section, it offers a brief outline of the emergence and development of the ‘peace versus justice’ debate, observing that the debate has become the dominant framing of ICC interventions into ongoing conflicts. The chapter then demonstrates how the ICC was made—and is structured—to intervene in active and ongoing conflicts and has been directed to by individual states and the UN Security Council. The third section addresses the research questions and research design that drove the research behind the book. In the fourth section, the subsequent chapters of the book are briefly outlined. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the book’s overall goals and contributions.
