The Rome Statute of the ICC at its Fifteenth Anniversary (Achivements and Perspectives) is an edited book comprising of 13 chapters written by contributors to a conference dedicated to discuss the development, achievements and possible future evolution of the Rome Statute and international criminal law. The authors include academics from various legal systems, practitioners from the ICC and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, attorneys and other practitioners and theoretics.
The International Criminal Court is the first universal international criminal tribunal. Though quite new (only 15 years have passed since the entry into force of its basic document - the Rome Statute), it has already developed interesting case-law and continues to elaborate on both substantive and procedural international criminal law.
