Background:  On 17 July 1998, at a conference in Rome, 120 States adopted a treaty, known as the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. For the first time, States created a permanent international criminal court to prosecute the perpetrators of the most serious crimes, namely war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide.

On 1 July 2002, upon ratification by 60 States, the treaty entered in to force formally establishing the International Criminal Court.

Today 123 States are parties to the Rome Statute, striving to build a more just world.
