Established as one of the main sources for the study of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, this volume provides a detailed analysis of the Statute; the detailed analysis draws upon relevant case law from the Court itself, as well as from other international and national criminal tribunals, academic commentary, and related instruments such as the Elements of Crimes, the Rules of Procedure and Evidence, and the Relationship Agreement with the United Nations. Each chapter includes accompanied by an overview of the drafting history as well as a bibliography of academic literature relevant to the provision. The text aims to avoid duplication and inconsistency, providing a comprehensive presentation to assist those who must understand, interpret, and apply the complex provisions of the Rome Statute. The fully updated second edition of this book incorporates new developments in the law, including discussions of recent judicial activity and the amendments to the Rome Statute adopted at the Kampala conference.
