impunity in Africa.

The Rome Statute of the ICC

The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, commonly known as the Rome Statute is the treaty that established the International Criminal Court (ICC). It was adopted at a diplomatic conference in Rome on 17th July 1998 and it entered into force on the 1st of July 2002.

After World War II, and some of the worst atrocities committed in the history of humankind taking place in the 20th century, the international community through the United Nations decided to take this action to bring the perpetrators of the most heinous crimes against humanity to justice. The creation of an International Criminal Court thus became a reality.
