Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter of the book explains the substance of the Rome Statute only enough to support the story’s narrative of the nature, personalities, and evolution of the negotiations. The significance and extraordinary nature of the International Criminal Court (ICC) negotiations raise the question of whether the Rome Statute could have come about at any other time. The chapter presents the full global context, highlighting the direct and indirect influences surrounding the negotiations and development of the ICC. It also provides information and analyses that illuminate both sides of the debate as well as describes the variable elements of psychology, political environment, continuity of persons, and general momentum at various stages of the ICC negotiation process.

Keywords:ICC negotiation process; international criminal court (ICC); Rome Statute
