Chapter Summary

International Criminal Justice (ICJ) made its way into international practice in several stages. The first period ranges from 1268 until 1815, effectively from the first international criminal prosecution of Conradin von Hohenstaufen in Naples through the end of World War I. The second stage begins with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles and ranges from 1919 until 2014, when it is expected that all of the existing direct and mixed model tribunals will have closed, leaving only the International Criminal Court (ICC). The third impending stage will begin in January 2015, when the ICC will be the primary international criminal tribunal. This chapter discusses a quantitative analysis of international criminal prosecutions after World War II (WWII). Where to draw the line between tokenism and symbolism is in large part judgmental, and includes political considerations.

Keywords:International Criminal Justice (ICJ); quantitative analysis; symbolism; tokenism
