Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the main issues of the debate, particularly those which generated the most controversy and led to the most innovative provisions, and the varied responses made to them at the Rome Diplomatic Conference. The Rome statute contained new codification of crimes that extended the protection of victims. With regard to war crimes, most of the negotiations focused on whether to include internal armed conflict within the jurisdiction of the Court. Rome Statute, codified the new list of crimes of sexual violence. The historic achievement of the negotiations was the new status and rights afforded to victims in international criminal law. The rights of victims to protection strengthened the rules and practice inherited from the ad hoc tribunals. Negotiating the jurisdiction of the ICC proved to be one of the most controversial issues at the Rome Diplomatic Conference.
