What naturalism. Broomhall is not the only one to note the interplay of substantive norms and state interests at Rome. Or as Georg Schwarzenberger put it, states are like Schopenhaur’s hedgehogs, huddling together in the cold, but repelled by each other’s spines.20 At the least, we should not be quick to assume that the international order has fundamentally changed, without looking at the evidence closely. And while, yes, law occasionally can be these things, it is more often complex, dynamic, and unique to every situation. 122. The first of these views is that of sovereignty as pre-legal, in which sovereignty represents a monolithic entity that is of clearly determinate content. A/59/2005, para. See, e.g., Overy, ‘The Nuremberg Trials: International Law in the Making’, in Nuremberg, at 29, Lattimer and Sands, supra note 14, at 13–17. Although international criminal law does involve some challenges to sovereignty, it also needs, and in some ways empowers, that sovereignty too. To take the view that sovereignty is pretty much absolute and unchangeable tends to lead to a dim view of the prospects of international criminal law.9 Thus Andrew Clapham, in an excellent chapter in Justice for Crimes against Humanity10 tells us ‘Sovereignty as such is a changing notion which adjusts to the developing nature of international law . Although most international criminal lawyers would accept that in the case of international crimes this is right, it also shows that sovereignty is not always the enemy. They also relieve us of the more material responsibilities too. E.g., Transformation, at 254, International Justice, at 151. Prosecutor v Furundžija, Judgement, IT-95-17/1-T, 10 Dec. 1998, para. The message is that you cannot murder, kill or dislocate people without punishment’. See Cryer, ‘Human Rights and the Question of International Courts and Tribunals’, in M. C. Davis, W. Dietrich, B. Scholdan and D. Sepp (eds), International Intervention in the Post-Cold War World (2003) 60, at 65–66. What was and is most urgently needed is not a surrender of sovereignty but a transformation and augmentation of it into new directions by harnessing it, through proper legal devices, to the making of collective decisions, and the taking of effective collective action, over international political problems.33. SS Wimbledon (France, Italy, Japan and UK v Germany) PCIJ Rep. Series A No. . Indeed, there may be empirical reasons for the argument that resort to criminal law is not a first, but a last resort, and that having tried trusting humanity, we have come to seek to limit its destructive urges.

See International Justice, pp. Robert Cryer, International Criminal Law vs State Sovereignty: Another Round?, European Journal of International Law, Volume 16, Issue 5, November 2005, Pages 979–1000, https://doi.org/10.1093/ejil/chi156. Impossible d'ajouter l'article à votre liste. As Broomhall notes, the decision in relation to the ICC that the crimes had to be spelt out in considerable detail was not solely because of an abstract commitment to a systematic presentation of international criminal law, but ‘also resulted from the awareness of governments that they were designing an institution that could possibly bring indictments against even their highest-ranking officials’ (at 31). Ironically, we act through state sovereignty in order to restrict actions justified in the name of state sovereignty.91 Sovereigns need limitation, but then maybe we all do. For earlier efforts see, e.g., B. Ferencz, The International Criminal Court, A Step Towards World Peace (1980). Generally, international criminal law scholars see sovereignty as the enemy. As Timothy McCormack states in his well-researched and thoughtful chapter in the same volume, inconsistencies in international criminal law enforcement are ‘most readily explicable on the basis of an “us” and “them” mentality’ (at 108), where states advocate the prosecution of ‘others’, whilst having ‘an aversion to accept the ugliness of what their own troops have done against the enemy they have come to dehumanise’.64, The respective works here are all moderately optimistic, although none could be considered naïve or utopian. S.S. Lotus, France v Turkey, PCIJ Series A No. This is not surprising, for if State sovereignty ... is often blamed for the violent condition of world affairs, international governance is not necessarily looked upon as a superior alternative. Sadat clearly is concerned with such an argument, see Transformation, at 169. The book challenges one-sided views that State sovereignty necessarily stands in the way of criminal justice for core international crimes, recognizing that criminal justice for atrocities depends entirely on the ability of States to act. State Sovereignty and International Criminal Law | Morten Bergsmo and LING Yan (editors) | download | B–OK. A constructivist account of the development of international criminal law would take very seriously the role of ideas about international criminal responsibility and the effect those have on states, especially how they perceive their interests and what values they internalize and act upon. Judah, ‘The Fog of Justice’, New York Review of Books (2004) LI(1), 23, at 25. It must also be noted, however, that Cassese’s approach to sovereignty is by no means simplistic or Manichean. Constructivist accounts could accept that at the beginning this might be on the basis that states would rather prosecute international crimes themselves than have the ICC do it. From Nuremberg to the Hague is a short work, consisting of five essays that derive from public lectures arranged by Matrix Chambers, and given at the Wiener Library in London. It is also present in substantive international criminal law. This may create a feeling that the investigation and prosecution of international crimes is, simply, the normal response to allegations of their commission. Sélectionnez la section dans laquelle vous souhaitez faire votre recherche. Although international criminal law does involve some challenges to sovereignty, it also Transformation, at 261. There is also a fairly short, albeit sophisticated section on the extent of criminal liability in the chapter by Clapham in Nuremberg, at 50–62. It argues that sovereignty, in particular where it is related to the implementation and enforcement of international law within the territory of the state, is now more rather than less an essential part of the structure of modern international law. FICHL publication series ; no. For example, passive personality jurisdiction is generally frowned upon in international law, yet it is unquestionably available in relation to international crimes.40 The broadest jurisdiction granted to states in international law, universal jurisdiction, is granted by international criminal law. Four of the five works under consideration have international criminal law as their primary focus. p. 2). International criminal lawyers often see sovereignty as the enemy of international criminal law, though frequently failing to discuss in any depth the nature and malleability of sovereignty. Prosecutor v Norman, Decision on Preliminary Motion Based on Lack of Jurisdiction (Child Recruitment), SCSL-2004-14-AR72, 31 May 2004, at paras 17–51. Comment les évaluations sont-elles calculées ? Similarly Bruce Broomhall accepts, at one point (at 59), that ‘the ‘terms and conditions’ imposed by the international community on those recognized as participants are variable over time. For a brave attempt at showing that international criminal law does cover such activity, see Marcus, supra note 48. International Criminal and Humanitarian Law Li Haopei Lecture Series. So, where does this leave us? See, e.g., A. P. Rubin, Ethics and Authority in International Law (1997). See Aceves and Hoffman, ‘Pursuing Crimes against Humanity in the United States: The Need for a Comprehensive Liability Regime’, in Justice, at 240. L. Nadya Sadat, The International Criminal Court and the Transformation of International Law: Justice for the New Millennium (2002) [hereinafter Transformation]. M. Lattimer and P. Sands (eds), Justice for Crimes against Humanity (2003) [hereinafter Justice]. 'State sovereignty' is often referred to as an obstacle to criminal justice for core international crimes by members of the international criminal justice movement. compatible’.5 Although Cassese has both the understanding of legal theory and the practical experience that makes such a view carry considerable weight, it is worth investigating the matter a little further. Either way, as it is hoped has been shown, whatever human nature, sovereignty is still part of the society in which we find ourselves, and its relationship to international criminal law is multifaceted and not easily reducible to shibboleths on either side. In contrast Jaspers accepted that although there was a close connection between the forms of guilt, ‘[t]his differentiation of concepts of guilt is to preserve us from the superficiality of talk that flattens everything out on a single plane’.79 One leads to criminal punishment, the other, for Jaspers, leads to a ‘transformation of human self-consciousness ... [and] ... may lead to a new source of active life, but one linked with an indelible sense of guilt and humility’.80. Ward is aware of this, fearing early on that, [p]erhaps Hobbes was right, perhaps our lives are meant to be ‘nasty, brutish and short’? Unable to effectuate the change explicitly, through formal amendment of the Charter, the international community, including not only States but global civil society, seized upon imaginative ways to bring about the shifts in constitutional structure necessary to permit international law to respond to the needs of international society and changing times.25, In applauding the Rome Statute for this, Sadat concedes too much to the critics of the ICC who say the ICC significantly alters the charter and international law generally. This is part of an argument that the Rome Statute provides a ground floor for definitions of crimes. Ward underestimates these problems. ), The Politics of International Law (2004). For an example see C. Reus-Smit (ed. Sadat’s work is both longer and more wide-ranging, dealing with almost all aspects of the ICC, procedural and substantive, in addition to attempting to use the creation of the ICC to argue for an alteration in the international legal order. Clapham, ‘Issues of Complexity, Complicity and Complementarity: From the Nuremberg Trials to the Dawn of the International Criminal Court’, in Nuremberg, at 64. See, e.g., Report of the Secretary-General Pursuant to General Assembly Resolution 53/35: The Fall of Srebrenica, UN Doc. The only serious criticism that can be made of the work is that, as we have had cause to note already, the number of thoughts and issues packed into a fairly short work mean that some ideas are not as fully developed as they could have been. State Sovereignty, Jurisdiction, and ‘Modern’ International Law: The Principle of Complementarity in the International Criminal Court - Volume 19 Issue 4 - FEDERICA GIOIA. Vous écoutez un extrait de l'édition audio Audible. See, e.g., Bennouna, ‘Sovereignty vs. Une erreur est survenue. Sovereignty can also be used to pre-empt fuller debate on the advisability of developing the law. A list which, Broomhall argues, is now being treated as a ‘de facto criminal code’ (at 29). Trouver tous les livres, en savoir plus sur l'auteur. International law is a system of freedom- countries can act in any manner which is not expressly prohibited. Secondly, the theme of the anthology is State Sovereignty and In-ternational Criminal Law. This is unfortunate, as some of the most interesting interactions between international criminal law and sovereignty occur at this level. As Leila Sadat puts it, the ICC was created as states, having tried all the other methods of repressing such offences, decided to ‘give justice a chance’ (at 72). And so it is likely to stay. Public international law towards the legal validity of objections against the usurpation of sovereignty applies to both republic and monarchical states. How else can we explain the serial horrors of the countless holocausts of the last century? It is simply one that many people (this author included) support. The same can be said about Broomhall’s International Justice. Broomhall’s discussion of this point is particularly good, see International Justice, at 86–93. She is not alone in this, for example, Lattimer and Sands assert that the Rome Statute ‘provides the most comprehensive, definitive and authoritative list of war crimes and crimes against humanity attracting individual criminal liability’.54 But Sadat perhaps goes the furthest, asserting that the definition process at Rome was a ‘quasi-legislative event that produced a criminal code for the world’ (at 263). (at 131). All the works specifically concentrating on international criminal law reviewed here contain defences of the ICC against the critiques levelled at it by the US that it violates pre-existing international law.23 Interestingly, those authors who assert that the ICC is transformative of the nature of international law may weaken the claim that the ICC is consistent with pre-existing international law. The only problem is that many people over literally millennia have shown themselves to be prone to the opposite side of human nature. They are … The exercise of legislative and adjudicative jurisdiction is an important part of state sovereignty. Sadat’s argument is that the Rome Statute involved a reconfiguration of the sources of international law, or, in her words. 'State sovereignty' is often referred to as an obstacle to criminal justice for core international crimes by members of the international criminal justice movement. IV. Vos articles vus récemment et vos recommandations en vedette. This should come as no surprise, as can be seen from the double-structured nature of the argumentation in the Lotus case, and the commentary it inspired.39 To assert jurisdiction over an action is to exercise a form of sovereignty over it, and where the jurisdiction being asserted is extraterritorial, this may cause consternation in the state where the offence occurred. The first of these is the criminalization of the recruitment of child soldiers, the second being the inclusion of gender (and perhaps culture) as prohibited grounds of discrimination in crimes against humanity.57 It would be difficult to argue now that these are not established in international criminal law. This is consistent with the approach taken in establishing international criminal tribunals since Nuremberg’. P. Jessup, A Modern Law of Nations: An Introduction (1948). However, he also noted ‘I am against reconciliation as seen from the Hague perspective. See also at 103 ‘Domestic trials will remain fraught with all the political, social, and resource difficulties that have always accompanied them, and the resulting imperfections will be slow to improve’. Indeed, in at least one instance, substantive international criminal law supports state sovereignty. Indeed, Philippe Sands, in his contribution to From Nuremberg to the Hague identifies this as one of the advantages of complementarity (at 76–77), as it ‘recognises that national courts will often be the best placed to deal with international crimes’, and provides them with an incentive to act. The International Criminal Court is rooted in customary law and addresses the failures of past attempts. Indeed, in at least one instance, substantive international criminal law supports state sovereignty. In its advice Customs régime between Germany and Austria (Protocol of March 19th, … International criminal law has areas of blindness. The funds paid to the ICC by its states parties are not taken from the development or reconstruction aid budgets. This is not to say that the ICC does not reflect a shift in attitudes. ‘The Making of the Rome Statute’, in Nuremberg, 109, at 115–117.

However, such an engagement by Broomhall could have made for a richer finale to what is already an excellent work. I give it 5 star without reservation. See, e.g., Kelsen, ‘Sovereignty and International Law’, 48 Georgetown Law Journal (1960) 627. Although international criminal law does involve some challenges to sovereignty, it also needs, and in some ways empowers, that sovereignty too. First, it considers the immunity of State officials from the exercise of foreign or international criminal jurisdiction. © 1996-2020, Amazon.com, Inc. ou ses filiales. Turning more specifically to the ICC, it also bears recalling that creating that body was an exercise of sovereignty. Quoted in Pace and Thieroff, ‘Participation of Non-Governmental Organisations’, in R. S. Lee (ed. Both hope for a better future for international criminal law. 'State sovereignty' is often referred to as an obstacle to criminal justice for core international crimes by members of the international criminal justice movement. The obligations undertaken by states parties to the Rome Statute, to cooperate with the Court and to, essentially, submit their judicial processes (or lack thereof) to external oversight also have implications for sovereignty. Clapham and Sadat may have a point. As the Canadian implementing legislation for the Rome Statute makes clear, ‘crimes described in Articles 6 and 7 and paragraph 2 of Article 8 of the Rome Statute are, as of July 17, 1998, crimes according to customary international law’.58 But there are also problems with getting to this result the way that Sadat does. In the Norman Child Soldiers decision of the Special Court of Sierra Leone, a decision which dealt with one of the few crimes that could be argued to be new in the Rome Statute (and in which the Appeals Chamber agreed with the Security Council, in determining that in fact it was not),62 even the dissenter Judge Robertson was prepared to accept that the crime crystallized at the negotiations in Rome.63 This is perfectly consistent with the traditional rules relating to treaties as evidence of customary international law, and there is thus no need to go further and assert that there has been a transformation in the nature of the international law making procedure, albeit one which ended up with what was in some ways, as Sadat put it, a ‘lowest common denominator’ (at 267) list of crimes. Achetez neuf ou d'occasion Aceves and Hoffmann, in Justice, however, in relation to crimes against humanity, treat the Rome Statute’s provision on crimes against humanity as the most authoritative interpretation of crimes against humanity in international criminal law’ (at 245). Après avoir consulté un produit, regardez ici pour revenir simplement sur les pages qui vous intéressent. State Sovereignty and International Criminal Law, Torkel Opsahl Academic EPublisher (29 octobre 2012). Ward is far more sanguine about the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) than about the ICTY. International criminal law certainly has its ‘schizophrenias’,47 such as the distinction between national and international armed conflicts. There are clear links between Allott’s and Ward’s work, but here is not the place to trace them. As Sir Robert Jennings has written in another context, the classical international lawyer’s call for a surrender of sovereignty was erroneous. They are the principal enforcers of … See T. L. H. McCormack, ‘Crimes Against Humanity’ in D. McGoldrick, P. Rowe and E. Donnelly (eds), The Permanent International Criminal Court: Legal and Policy Issues (2003) 179, at 200. The prohibition of aggression protects states by criminalizing armed violations of their sovereignty.46. It is notable that this debate is also taking place amongst those who support the International Criminal Court. According to Broomhall, ‘it is in this context that the impact of the ICC and international criminal law are most likely to be felt’.67, Although Broomhall’s views here are unquestionably sensible and thoughtful, there is an extent to which two issues could have been further separated out, and the second elaborated on more in the work. Latimer and Sands’ Justice has a number of extremely well thought-through chapters,90 although as might be expected from a fairly lengthy edited collection, the variety of views on offer means that it is difficult to draw an overall ‘message’ from the work over and above the idea that international criminal law is basically a good thing. in the end the debate turns on what one chooses to understand by the term sovereignty and who should be protected ... the rule that there should be no interference in state sovereignty simply begs the question: what are the rights and duties associated with sovereignty?’ (at 305, 312, 313). By engaging the laden concept of ‘state sovereignty’, the This would provide a defence against those who claim that if the Security Council were to make the law applicable to conflicts in non-party states (as it has now done in relation to Darfur, Sudan, in Resolution 1593) there could be a violation of the nullum crimen principle.55. It furthers the University's objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide, This PDF is available to Subscribers Only. Secondly, with the closing down of the ad hoc international criminal tribunals, attention shifts to the exercise of national jurisdiction over core international crimes, making the scope of universal jurisdiction more relevant to perceptions of State sovereignty. First, it responds to a normative claim with an empirical observation. What is at issue is who is to be empowered to exercise sovereignty, the locus delicti alone, or other states? Having shifted to issues of theory, it is apposite to turn now to Professor Ward’s Humanity. No longer will these crimes be simply political events to be addressed by diplomacy at the international level.70. Despite this, Sadat, consistent with her idea that the ICC has probably altered international society, at times takes a very broad view of the normative impact of the drafting process at Rome. See also at 188. There is a very useful section in International Justice on this point, however, at 41–51. In other words states internalize the value of prosecution of international crimes without thought of the external reasons for doing so.68 Broomhall is cognisant of the first possibility, accepting that, [S]tates have begun taking steps to amend national law to reflect the jurisdictional scope of the Rome Statute. As we have seen, there were only a very small number of cases where the drafters stepped even arguably beyond the pre-existing law. I also love how timeously it was delivered ahead of time. 9; Booth, ‘Prospects and Issues for the International Criminal Court: Lessons from Yugoslavia’, in Nuremberg, at 186–191; Transformation, at 280–281.

Still, these instruments are also open to critique about their lack of transparency and equal application (International Justice, at 57). Ibid., at 30. Further along, Sadat insists that. I. Without sovereignty there are no courts, and without courts there are no prosecutions. This political contestation over the substance of international criminal law was clearly in evidence in Rome. Crawford, in his contribution to Nuremberg, is more circumspect, describing the Rome Statute (at 152) as a limited code of international criminal law. But there is also a question about whether the ICC is really that threatening to sovereignty in the first place. It is also present in substantive international criminal law. The second problem Ward identifies with prosecutions (at 131) is drawn from Hannah Arendt: that such trials are anticlimactic, as evil is banal, and ‘[f]lashy show trials of certain individuals ... allow the rest of us to pretend that we are not ourselves in some way responsible’. This is what he describes as a ‘new legitimation environment’ in which states operate (at 5), one in which they are increasingly under pressure from NGOs and their electorates to justify their decisions. At Rome, for example, ‘this would intrude on our sovereignty’ was often used as a euphemism for ‘we don’t like this’ per se. This volume revisits the relationship between State sovereignty and international criminal law along three main lines of inquiry. Others have gone further, and claimed that the TRC was a flawed institution designed to serve the interests of a new political elite rather than the victims.86 Either way, it is by no means clear that the TRC has led to reconciliation in South Africa, or contributed to the social justice it was intended to foster. The grounding of the ICC in the consent of states means, in particular, that the ICC may lawfully exercise jurisdiction over nationals of non-party states when they commit crimes on the territories of consenting states. For example, in the 1960s there was Wolfgang Friedmann’s assertion that the international legal system was moving from an international law of coexistence to an international law of cooperation.16 In the 1940s there was Phillip Jessup’s A Modern International Law17 and Jorge Americano’s The New Foundations of International Law,18 and in the pre-war era, there was Alfred Zimmern’s distinction between the ‘old’ and the ‘new’ diplomacy, the latter represented by the League of Nations.19 Perhaps the international system has traditionally been characterized by a continual tension in the international legal order between some elements of multilateralism and some of unilateralism. , Judgement, IT-95-17/1-T, 10 Dec. 1998, para d'un commentaire et si le commentateur a acheté l'article Amazon...
