This book focuses on the evolution and the present-day work of the International Criminal Court, a historic global institution. Errol P. Mendes argues that there can never be a sustainable peace in conflicts unless the cause of justice is also addressed.

The author dives deep into the facts and rulings of the Court that involved some of the most serious international conflicts in recent times. The author also discusses the challenges facing the Court from failures of the UN Security Council and other member states. What results is a detailed but honest critique of where the Court succeeds and where it needs to improve. Mendes goes on to provide a prediction of the greatest challenges facing the Court in the foreseeable future.

This book is a valuable resource for academics and students in international criminal law and practice, public international relations, political science, military and war studies.
