Chapter Summary

The Rome Statute is a formal legal document deliberately created in officially authorized negotiations and debates following prescribed procedure and techniques and ending in a vote. The best and most complete comparison is probably with the negotiations for the United Nations Charter. A larger question is whether the negotiations for the Statute show us a new or substantially further developed kind of multilateral diplomacy. Many aspects of the ICC negotiations seem to show that new forms and techniques of multilateral diplomacy were in fact at work. This feeling was behind the eventual determination to insist and not concede on the fundamental elements of the court that would make it free, fair and independent and the willingness, in the end, to take a vote that would secure this kind of court.
