Complementarity in the Rome Statute and National Criminal Jurisdictions

Jann K. Kleffner

International Courts and Tribunals Series

  • Clarifies one of the key features of the emerging international criminal justice system established under the Rome Statute, combining practice-oriented analysis with theoretical reflection
  • Provides a concrete conceptual manifestation of the complex inter-relationship between international courts and tribunals and domestic courts
  • Analyses a highly relevant but relatively under-explored feature of the International Criminal Court in the context of a comprehensive overview of all the relevant provisions of the Rome Statute, making this a valuable reference work
  • Examines the potential catalyst function of the principle of complementarity in relation to prosecutorial action against 'core crimes' at the domestic level
