This chapter shows that the ‘complementarity’ mechanism of the Rome Statute, whereby States are given priority in proceeding against international crimes, is one of the real potential strengths of the ICC regime. However, issues such as the role of prosecution in relation to peace and reconciliation remain, along with the related questions of amnesties that it raises.

Keywords:   international criminal law, complementarity mechanism, Rome Statute, prosecution, amnesty
