This chapter comments on Article 119 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Article 119 provides a mechanism for resolving disputes concerning the judicial functions of the Court and disputes between two or more States Parties relating to the interpretation or application of the Statute. The article takes a somewhat unique approach in that it proposes an intermediate stage of a political nature at which the Assembly of States Parties is to intervene. This emphasizes the likelihood that disputes between two States about application and interpretation of the Rome Statute will have a more general interest to many or all States Parties.
