From Kampala to New York: The Final Negotiations to Activate the Jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court over the Crime of Aggression
Professor Jennifer Trahan, of the NYU School of Professional Studies, Center for Global Affairs, presented a working draft of her work From Kampala to New York: The final negotiations to activate the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court over the crime of aggression. This work concludes that even with the limitations on jurisdiction, States Parties still have made an historic contribution to the development of international criminal law. Moreover, if even one aggressive use of force is prevented, then the crime of aggression negotiations conducted over the last two decades will have been well worth the efforts. ICC States Parties concerned about limitations on jurisdiction now have even more reason to ratify the crime of aggression amendment.
