International Justice and the International Criminal Court

This chapter finds in the basic features of the Rome Statute a balance between the needs of a credible system of justice and the desire to induce wide State support for the ICC. The real strengths in the definitions, general principles, and some of the mechanisms of the Rome Statute are tempered by the fact that the ultimate effectiveness of the Court remains in the hands of States, individually and collectively.
