Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of the book, which begins with general reflections on the theme of the International Criminal Court (ICC) at five years by those who have closely shaped or followed the naissance of the Court and its policies. Where does the Court stand now? In generational terms, the Court is widely considered as the successor of the ad hoc tribunals. The Court is still an entity in statu nascendi; certain teething symptoms have been diagnosed in the first practice. Some of the grand doyens of the discipline have raised doubts about the first steps of the ICC. The book combines expertise from inside the Court with inputs from external and critical observers. The authors hope that this diversity of views and analysis will shed a fresh light on some of the merits and main challenges of the Court in the transition from infancy to emancipation.
