Legal aspects of international political relations

In 1998, following six years of preparatory work by the International Law Commission (ILC) and General Assembly committees, a plenipotentiary conference adopted the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. When ratified, the Statute would establish the Court as a permanent institution with power to investigate and bring to justice individuals accused of the most serious crimes of international concern, including genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and the crime of aggression. The Conference also set up a Preparatory Commission to prepare proposals for practical arrangements for the Court, including draft rules of procedure and evidence.
