The International Criminal Court (ICC) officially came into existence in July 2002 following the 60th ratification of the Rome Statute, heralding a new era for the effective prosecution and punishment of serious violations of international humanitarian law. This thematic two volume commentary analyses not only the Rome Statute but the whole of international criminal law as it has been built up since the Nuremberg Trials. A third volume contains the Texts of the Statute, the Rules of Procedure and Evidence, and Elements of Crimes.
