The International Criminal Court; a global civil society achievement.


The International Criminal Court; a global civil society achievement.

Glasuis, Marlies.



158 pages



Routledge advances in international relations and global politics; v.39


Rather than focus on the official history of the International Criminal Court, Glasius (Centre for the Study of Global Governance, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK) prefers to explore how the development of a more "people- empowering" international rule of law and the emergence of global civil society interacted to produce the Rome Statute establishing the Court. Along the way, he describes the main features of the court, including the crimes covered, the role of the prosecutor, the jurisdiction regime, gendered aspects, and the court's position on weapons of mass destruction.
