In 2018, Member States celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Rome Statute. As one of the Korean delegates to the Rome Conference in 1998 that established the International Criminal Court, the author is intimately familiar with matters related to its formation and subsequent development. This work, a leading authority for the practice and procedure of the ICC, addresses a host of difficult and common questions about the court and records legislative histories of important articles of the ICC Statute.

Since publication of the first edition in 2007, there have been many important developments regarding the ICC. This new edition covers amendments to the Rome Statute that were adopted with respect to war crimes and the crime of aggression, which give the court jurisdiction over the most serious crimes of concern to the international community as a whole. It also includes important case law of the ICC.

“Kim’s enormous hands-on experience with the ICC proves an incredible source of authority for this new book. So, Kim’s book on the ICC will become required reading for the international lawyer, political scientists, human rights leaders, peace advocates, and government officials all over the world.” – Francis A. Boyle, Foreword [to the 1st ed.]
