About the Authors
  • The 2010 Kampala Amendments to the Rome Statute empowered the International Criminal Court to prosecute the 'supreme crime' under international law: the crime of aggression. This landmark commentary provides the first analysis of the history, theory, legal interpretation and future of the crime of aggression. As well as explaining the positions of the main actors in the negotiations, the authoritative team of leading scholars and practitioners set out exactly how countries have themselves criminalized illegal war-making in domestic law and practice. In light of the anticipated activation of the Court's jurisdiction over this crime in 2017, this work offers, over two volumes, a comprehensive legal analysis of how to understand the material and mental elements of the crime of aggression as defined at Kampala. Alongside The Travaux Préparatoires of the Crime of Aggression (Cambridge, 2011), this commentary provides the definitive resource for anyone concerned with the illegal use of force.

    • The world's leading experts - from both the academy and the Kampala Conference negotiations - come together in these volumes to provide the definitive commentary on the international crime of aggression
    • Situates the crime of aggression amendments to the Rome Statute within a wider historical, theoretical and political context
    • Offers a wide-reaching analysis of legislation spanning several national jurisdictions, provides insightful policy assessments by representatives of key State actors, and comprehensively sets out the position of the crime under international law
    • Comprehensively examines the elements of the crime, to assist practitioners and scholars in its interpretation

    'Kreß and Barriga have brought together leading theorists, lawyers, diplomats, and advocates to examine every aspect of the crime of aggression, from the definition of the offense to its jurisdictional constraints, from its drafting history to its domestic implementation, and from its relationship with the UN Charter to its relationship with just war theory … No international law library will be complete without these two volumes.' Adil Ahmad Haque, Just Security (www.justsecurity.org)
