Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the Rome Statute after its adoption for international criminal court (ICC). Following its adoption very late at night on 17 July at the headquarters of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the Rome Statute was opened for signature by all states present in Rome. The Statute charged a preparatory commission to draft critical documents that would determine how the Court would function in addition to the Rules of Procedure and Evidence and the Elements of Crimes. The coalition for the international criminal court (CICC) focused on organizing a global signature and ratification campaign in addition to monitoring and contributing to the work of the preparatory commission. Although it opposed the adoption of the Rome Statute, the United States actively participated in the work of the preparatory commission along with every other state present in Rome.
