Abstract

In 1998, a half-century after the Nuremberg trials of Nazi war criminals, a diplomatic conference finalized the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC). 1 Only four years later, that treaty entered into force following its ratification by sixty states. The creation of a permanent, global tribunal to prosecute those responsible for the worst international crimes fulfilled a dream kept alive throughout the Cold War.
