  2. The territorial jurisdiction in the ICC also raises many concerns

The Rome Statutes, a treaty adopted on July 1998 by the United Nations, established the ICC as an International Tribunal from the 1st of July 2002. Today, there are 104 parties to the Rome Statutes. According to article 5, the Court will have jurisdiction over the crime of genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and crimes of aggression (once the latter is defined by the State parties). Though the ICC seems to be an advancement in International Law, it has faced many criticisms since its creation; criticisms that this essay will attempt to outline.
