The International Criminal Court

Consent, Complementarity and Cooperation

By Kristina Miskowiak

The Rome Statue of the International Criminal Court represents a compromise between states with widely different agendas. Not all states at the Rome Conference were positive towards the idea of an effective International Court. This book examines three issues of relevance to the balance of competence between the court and states: The necessity of state consent to the court's jurisdiction, the complementarity of international and national justice systems, and the obligation of states parties to fully cooperate with the court.
