The Rome Statute at Twenty

This year marks a major milestone for the International Criminal Court, with the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the Rome Statute. The Rome Statute is the ICC's founding treaty, adopted on 17 July 1998 at the United Nations Diplomatic Conference, and entered into force four years later, on 1 July 2002.

To commemorate 20 years of the Rome Statute, we have put together a collection of articles, headnotes, and chapters from across Oxford Public International Law exploring the historical background, structure, and legacy of the International Criminal Court, along with some of the crimes within the court's jurisdiction.
