About the Authors
  • The Travaux Préparatoires of the Crime of Aggression contains a complete documentation of the fifteen years of negotiations which led up to the historic adoption of the amendments to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court at the 2010 Review Conference in Kampala. Arranged chronologically, it includes all relevant official Chairman's drafts, non-papers, country proposals, meeting reports and summary records, as well as selected unpublished materials and transcripts from the dramatic negotiations at the Review Conference.

    'This volume will undoubtedly contribute to a better understanding of the complexities of the Kampala compromise. Suffice it to say, the road does not end at Kampala, and the landmark of the compromise has been encapsulated excellently in this comprehensive scholarly commentary,which serves as an essential foundation upon which the rest of the journey can continue.' Meagan Wong, Journal of Conflict and Security Law
