Chapter Summary

Article 1 stipulates that the International Criminal Court shall be &t;a permanent institution&t;. Its mandate is not limited nor is its jurisdiction territorially confined. The Court is vested with jurisdiction over persons committing the &t;most serious crimes of international concern, as referred to in this Statute&t;. The International Criminal Court is collectively identified in article 1 as &t;the Court&t; encompassing all its organs enumerated in article 34. Article 4 endowes the Court with international legal personality, an institution of international order associated with the fulfillment of the objects and purposes of the Statute. Such powers are known as the &t;inherent powers&t; of a court of law imported by the very notion of a body trusted to dispense justice. Article 2 provides that the Court must be brought into relationship with the United Nations by an agreement to that end between the Assembly of States Parties and the United Nations.
