'A Gift of Hope for Future Generations' is what Kofi Annan, Secretary-General of the United Nations, called the International Criminal Court on the adoption of its Statute in Rome, July 1998. Six months later, on 15 December 1998, a seminar was held in the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which analysed the position of the ICC within the international arena, exploring its relationship to the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and the Security Council, as well as its relationship to the host country, the Netherlands. A number of contributions to the seminar are contained in the present volume. In addition to these contributions, essays are included that reflect on parts of the Statute or on the process by which it was created. The various contributions are written by eminent international lawyers, several of whom were actively involved in the negotiations leading to the adoption of the Rome Statute. This compilation is dedicated to Adriaan Bos, the Legal Adviser of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, who was the chairman of all the preparatory meetings leading to the Rome Conference.;His opening contribution to the seminar is also included in this volume.
