This chapter asks why––and whether––the international community should finally codify crimes against humanity in an international convention, particularly given its recent inclusion in the Statute of the International Criminal Court. It considers the normative foundations and practical application of crimes against humanity by international and national courts, and how a new treaty might strengthen both the preventive and punishment dimensions of national and international responses to these crimes. It is a particularly appropriate contribution to a volume in honour of William Schabas, for he has been a member of the steering committee for the Crimes Against Humanity Initiative from the very beginning. Professor Schabas is a leading expert on international criminal law, the international criminal court, and international human rights law, and his contributions to the Crimes Against Humanity Initiative have been vital to the project’s success.

Keywords:   crimes against humanity, complementarity, international law commission, crime prevention, International Criminal Court
