Part 2: Jurisdiction, Admissibility and Applicable Law
Exercise of jurisdiction over the crime of aggression (State referral, proprio motu)
“A quarter century ago today the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) was completed following years of negotiations. I led the U.S. delegation in those talks.”
