The ICC (International Criminal Court) is the last great international institution of the twentieth century. In July 17, 1998, 120 states voted to adopt the Rome statute of the ICC at headquarters of the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) in Rome. The elaborate and complex negotiated instrument, a framework for an international criminal justice system, represented the highest point of a process that began in the wake of the Nuremberg Judgement, when the first time United Nations considered the establishment of an international criminal jurisdiction. In future, the ICC resolve more increasingly be capable of show, by way of powerful judgements resulting from fair and efficient trials, that it sets legal and moral standards that will contribute to the expansion of International Justice. The ICC is based on a treaty, joined by 123 countries. The mechanism of Art.21(3), which is more precise than that of the ICTs, could encourage them to give greater weight to International human rights instruments.
