Chapter Summary

The life of the Rome Diplomatic Conference was only five weeks. With the five-week deadline, everyone attending the Rome Diplomatic Conference knew that time would be a constant factor and have a major influence on negotiation techniques employed there. After the first two weeks of negotiations, the Rome Diplomatic Conference turned into a marathon. The Preparatory Committee, the negotiations had had a complex rhythm in the movement of issues, problems, and texts. On Sunday, 5 July, with two weeks left in the Conference, the curtain went up on the drama of its final days. Late on the evening of Thursday, 16 July, Chairman Kirsch convened a group of states composed of the Bureau as well as coordinators of the working groups, who were known as the ‘extended Bureau’. Together they managed to complete the final draft of the Rome Statute.
