Chapter Summary

The international community's current drive to ensure that those who commit egregious crimes in all corners of the world are held accountable has led to an unexpected upsurge in the number of international criminal trials. This has consequently impacted the development of international criminal law. Most recently a permanent court, the International Criminal Court (ICC) was established with more or less the same jurisdiction as the international Tribunals. It is responsible for ensuring that allegations of gross abuses of human rights committed within the territory of state parties to the Rome Statute are punished where the states are unwilling or unable to prosecute the perpetrators. This chapter provides an overview of the rights of suspects and the accused at pre-trial and trial stages, including a detailed analysis of the extent to which the rights have been protected by legal institutions in the international arena.

Keywords: human rights treaties; International Criminal Court (ICC); international criminal law
