Following a review of international humanitarian and criminal law and a description of many unpunished massacres or genocides, this book opens up perspectives of remedy through national justice, truth and reconciliation commissions, and mainly international criminal justice. In June 1998, diplomats from all United Nations' countries met in Rome to draft the Statute of a permanent International Criminal Court, a daring innovation. Based on the precedents of the Nuremberg and Tokyo Tribunals and the War Crimes Tribunals for the Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda, the new Court will judge individuals, not states, for grave violations of international humanitarian law.
