Chapter Summary

On 17 July 1998 in Rome (Italy), the Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) was adopted to establish the first ever permanent, treaty based, international criminal judicial organ, whose purpose is to promote international peace and security by ensuring that the gravest international crimes do not go unpunished. This chapter addresses the issue of legality of the ICC by reviewing four interrelated issues: I. the ICC as a novel mechanism to promote international peace and security outside the UN Charter framework; II. the ICC as a novel derivative subject of international law with ceded jurisdiction; III. the ICC as a novel mechanism to protect Member States against international obligations; IV. the ICC as a novel mechanism to enforce international obligations against non-Member States.

Keywords: International Criminal Court (ICC); UN Charter; Vienna Convention
