Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the speech on the occasion of a day devoted to the memory of the late Professor Bert Röling. He sets himself few observations about "the road to Rome". This road has been long and winding, and, for such a long road, sparsely marked with milestones: a modest one shortly after the Great or First World War. A cluster of major ones in the aftermath of the Second World War - with Röling figuring prominently in one of these; in 1974 a hardly noticeable one; and finally, after the breakthrough of 1989 with its short-lived "New World Order". A cataract of events tumbling one over the other, with the adoption of the Rome Statute in 1998 marking a provisional end of the road. This chapter confines to some salient features that are somewhat closer to the author's own sphere of competence than the specific criminal-law aspects.

Keywords: First World War; international war crimes; New World Order; Professor Bert Röling; Rome; Second World War
