Chapter Summary

The significance for international law, however, arises from the fundamental challenge posed to it by an acceptance of supranational concerns ever more threatening to the Westphalia concept of sovereignty. The International Labor Organization (ILO) had concerned itself with promoting and promulgating rules intended to provide protection and minimum conditions for workers who might otherwise have felt themselves the subject of unrestricted exploitation. This chapter focuses essentially on the interplay of law and politics in considering the offenses with which the International Criminal Court (ICC) will be concerned. The International Criminal Court is an important beginning, but complementary bodies to remove the causes of human rights abuse are a necessary addition.
