Chapter Summary

The negotiations during and before the development of the Rome Statute had their own history, themes, and structures. A close examination of these patterns helps explain the nature and flow of the International Criminal Court (ICC) negotiations themselves. The procedures of the General Assembly and its resolutions on the ICC negotiations established a rhythm of interaction between the various negotiating bodies and the Assembly itself. Beginning with the Ad Hoc Committee, each session of negotiations reported on its work to the General Assembly through its Sixth Committee. Moreover, resolutions of procedures of the General Assembly and binding on its members and therefore are most likely to have practical effect when all members agree to them. Except for draft resolutions on the ICC and about measures to eliminate international terrorism, the Sixth Committee’s agenda consisted of standing items.
